Le Tue mani sul mio corpo (Shocking)
The English title of Brunello Rondi's Le Tue mani sul mio corpo is Shocking, but as a description of the film that title is pretty far off the mark. It sounds pretty good when you look at credits, it features a script by Luciano Martino & Mino Loy, a soundtrack by Giorgio Gaslini, it stars Lino Capolicchio and even Sergio Martino pops up a "Organizzatore generale". With a line-up like that you'd be forgiven for thinking you're in good hands, but unfortunately the giallo links are tenuous at best and the film really is more of a character study than a thriller. There are a few interesting visuals on display here and there but on the whole it's a far too slow moving to be of interest to most genre fans. No info on the poster art.
