A lurid tale of sex and psychosis is among the wildest of the Gainsborough melodramas. Set in Italy, it begins as a comparatively sedate tale about a respectable, convent-raises woman who is haunted by the memory of being raped as a teenager. But when her grown daughter returns from school, her life begins to unravel in monumentally surprising ways.

This is a 1945 British drama directed by Arthur Crabtree for Gainsborough Pictures, based on the 1931 novel of the same name by Margery Lawrence.
A buried trauma from the past holds the key to the disappearance of Maddalena---a respectable married woman.
She has a dual personality which leads her to forsake her husband and daughter, to flee to the house of the Seven Moons in Florence as the mistress of a jewel thief.
This sudden change of the storyline is unbelievable---if not foolishly mixed up.
The performances of the actors appear amateuristic and unnatural.
This is one of the terrible flops I've seen for a decade.

A nice romantic/mysterious melodrama where two men fall in love with the same woman, well, almost the same woman. Some of the plot seems a little improbable and a few of the secondary actors seem a little campy or exaggerated. But if you can just go with the flow, it is a decent story. One of Stewart Granger's early British films before he moved to Hollywood.
