Shotgun weddings, kidnapping, attempted murder, emergency dental work?the things Don Vincenzo (Saro Urzì) will do to restore his family's honor! Pietro Germi's Seduced and Abandoned (Sedotta e abbandonata) was the follow-up to his international sensation Divorce Italian Style, and in many ways it's even more audacious?a rollicking yet raw series of escalating comic calamities that ensue in a small village when sixteen-year-old Agnese (the beautiful Stefania Sandrelli) loses her virginity at the hands of her sister's lascivious fiancé. Merciless and mirthful, Seduced and Abandoned skewers Sicilian social customs and pompous patriarchies with a sly, devilish grin.
