Pureté

A Short film by Roberto Rossellini

Produced by Arco Film, Cineriz

Production year : 1963

    Synopsis

    Illibatezza ("Chastity") by Roberto Rossellini is a story of a beautiful stewardess which attracts unwanted attention from one of the air travellers - a middle aged American. The two overnight by chance in the same hotel. She has a fiance back home, to whom she sends video recordings made with her portable camera. These show how, in order to shoo away the unwanted flirtatious attentions of the traveller, all she had to do was to act in an aggressively provocative way; his sexual attraction being fueled by the shyness with which she initially tried to endure his advances.
