Storyline: Based on a true incident, this tells the story of a troubled young man who kills his sister's reactionary, violent and abusive husband and is eventually arrested for the murder. However, the dead husband happened to be a member of the Italian nobility, and the trial starts to turn into more of a prosecution of the defendant's socialist politics and the activities of his father, a well known liberal social reformer, than the actual crime itself.

The Murri trial, that was actually held at the beginning of the century,filled the chronicles for the gravity of the fact, the reputation of the characters, and the atmosphere of morbid curiosity. The authors, freely recalling it,were inspired impartially by the trial records, from which emerged, besides the facts,that raised around it. the characters and personalities of the protagonists of this family tragedy.
002-3 From NY timas and starpuls
Based on a true story, this political thriller/drama explores the ordeal of Linda Murri (Catherine_Deneuve), a 19th-century upper-class Italian woman who was caught in an unhappy marriage and who broke the code of behavior for aristocrats by taking a lower-class lover. After her husband was murdered, Murri stood trial for the murder. Her professor father's socialist opinions were clearly the reason for the harshness of the prosecution. The case was widely known throughout Italy at the time, and caused a national furor. Murri did not actually arrange to murder her boorish nobleman husband Count Bonmartini (Paolo_Bonacelli); rather, she told her brother how unhappy she was and that she was afraid for her life. He acted on her complaint by taking the drastic step of murder. The trial resulted in her being given a long prison term, along with her brother (Giancarlo_Giannini), her lover Carlo Secci (Ettore_Manni) and her brother's assistants Pio and Rosa (Corrado Pani and Tina Aumont). The relentlessness of the prosecutor Giudice Stanzani (Marcel_Bozzuffi) and the spinelessness of the family patriarch Augusto Murri (Fernando_Rey), the professor with the unpopular opinions, are key dramatic features of this complex story.

A book "Indecent Secrets: The infamous Murri Murder Affair"
Summary:On a hot summer day in Italy in 1902, the brutally stabbed body of Count Francesco Bonmartini was discovered, by means of its decomposing stench, inside his locked apartment. He was a typical Italian provincial aristocrat in all but one way: he had married into a prominent but deeply troubled family. His father-in-law was one of the nation's most famous doctors. His wife, Linda, a young freethinker, was the apple of her father's eye. Linda's brother dabbled in anarchism. Linda's lover was her father's top assistant. Her relations with them were illicit, incestuous -- and murderous.
The scandal that erupted was a top news story in Europe and America for three consecutive years. Investigators uncovered successive layers of a conspiracy that constantly twisted and changed its shape. The suspects included all these men as well as their servants and lovers. There was a diverse array of murder weapons, including knives, heavy pellets, and poison. There were rumors of missing accomplices. Intimate relations among many suspects were uncovered through sensational letters and testimonials. Witnesses died mysteriously. A suspect tried to kill himself. One question lingered throughout and still haunts researchers today: what role did Bonmartini's widow, Linda, known as "The Enchantress," play? Was she the spider at the center of the vast web, or did the plot originate with the key men who loved her so desperately?

Scholar and writer Christina Vella combines meticulous research with a novelist's eye for a great story. As she unspools the tight, tense drama, she offers a fascinating picture of Italian society in the early 20th century, with a historian's insights into life at both the top and the bottom. From sexual dysfunctions, to prison conditions, to the patronage systems that permeated medicine, law, and politics, the Bonmartini murder provides a window into a rich world. The result is an unforgettable story and an invaluable introduction to an Italy that is still recognizable today.

About the author: Christina Vellaholds a Ph.D. in modern European and American history. In addition to teaching and lecturing, she is a consultant to public television and to the U.S. State Department. She lives in New Orleans.(Here and here)

The Infamous Murri Murder Affair
by Christina Vella

The true history of a bizarre 1905 murder case in Venice and Bologna, Italy, involving adultery, incest, perjury, the obsession of four men with the woman at the center of the conspiracy, and---not least---a description of how people in Italy lived at the turn of the 20th century.


Bologna 1902 scene of the murder
THE PUBLIC'S INTENSE INTEREST in scandalous trials did not begin with O.J. Simpson or Michael Jackson. The Murri affair, which erupted in Italy in 1902, was considered the crime of the century for many years. As late as the 1970s, a movie starring Catherine Deneuve was based on the salacious case.

In Indecent Secrets: The Infamous Murri Murder Affair, Christina Vella provides a riveting account of the scandal. In 1902 in Bologna, Count Francesco Bonmartini was found grotesquely murdered. Bonmartini was the son-in-law of Italy's most prominent physician and scientist. Suspicion fell first on prostitutes Bonmartini had consorted with, then on his wife's brother, Tullio Murri, and then on the wife herself, Linda Murri.

Tullio eventually confessed to the killing, but he had also drawn others into the crime, people who came from the highest and lowest extremes of society. He had involved his lover, a girl whose ten brothers had died from malnutrition. The shadowy involvement of his famous father was always in question; Professor Augusto Murri, though an apparent model of rectitude, was madly obsessed with his daughter and may even have planted the idea for the killing in Tullio's disturbed mind. All together, eight people were indicted for the murder, and several unindicted conspirators were involved as well.

Count Bonmartini
Linde Murri
At the center of the story was Linda Murri----the so-called enchantress?-- who was either innocent of all the murder plans swirling around her, or who instigated the entire conspiracy.Four men were madly, slavishly, in love with Linda----her husband, her lover, her brother, and her father. According to credible sources, her husband was the only one with whom she was not having sexual relations.

Small wonder that the crime occupied almost every newspaper in Europe for three years, as the whole continent lined up on the side of the victim Bonmartini---the side of Catholic, landed aristocrats---or Murri side, the side of scientists, socialists and atheists. Many people believed the theory that Tullio had not in fact committed the murder, but had confessed in order to protect the real killer, Linda.


As the long trial proceeded, secret diaries came to light. Important witnesses began dying under mysterious circumstances. Had they, like Bonmartini, been killed by the powerful Murris? Was Linda truly a malignant spirit, or only the victim of uncontrollable frenzy in the press? The culmination of the trial and its aftermath was a story more bizarre than any novelist could have invented.

As in her previous books, historian Vella uses a dramatic, true event as a framework for telling a larger story: what it was like to live in Italy at the turn of the 20th century, the time when Italians were emigrating en masse to America. She offers many details about such things as housing, meals, medical treatments, morals, the legal system, prisons, travel conditions, newspapers, and peasant life in Italy, and vividly describes cities where the Murris lived---Bologna, Turin, and Venice. The result is an exploration of fascinating characters and a window into Italy's complex society at the dawn of the modern era.(Here)
003-About the director Mauro Bolognini
director Mauro Bolognini
director Mauro Bolognini
director Mauro Bolognini

Mauro Bolognini was born in Pistoia, Tuscany.

A former architectural student, Bolognini began his film career as an assistant to director Luigi Zampa in Italy, and directors Yves Allegret and Jean Delannoy in France. He began directing his own feature films in the mid 1950s, and had his first international success with Gli innamorati ("Wild Love").

His other notable films of the 1950s and early 1960s include Giovani mariti ("Young Husbands"), La notte brava, La giornata balorda ("From a Roman Balcony"), and the Marcello Mastroianni-Claudia Cardinale starrer Il bell'Antonio (arguably his masterpiece), all written by Pier Paolo Pasolini.

Parting professionally with Pasolini in 1961, Bolognini went on to direct two sensual love stories starring Cardinale, La Viaccia and Senilit脿, before turning his talents to a series of international anthology films, including Le bambole (The Dolls), I tre volti ("Three Faces of a Woman"), Le fate ("The Queens") and Le streghe (The Witches).

Returning to features in the late 1960s with Mademoiselle De Maupin, his later works included the accomplished period dramas Metello and Bubu (both featuring Massimo Ranieri), Fatti di gente per bene (La Grande Bourgeoise) starring Giancarlo Giannini, Catherine Deneuve and Fernando Rey, L'eredit脿 Ferramonti (The Inheritance) with Anthony Quinn and Dominique Sanda, and La Dame aux cam茅lias featuring a young Isabelle Huppert.

In his later years, Bolognini continued directing feature films, as well as opera and the television miniseries The Charterhouse of Parma and The Time Of Indifference. His final movie feature was the soft-core erotic drama Husbands and Lovers, released in 1992. In 1994 he directed the show that the top female Greek singer Haris Alexiou appeared in the world famous Odeon of Herodes Atticus.

He died in Rome in 2001.(Here))

He appeared in supporting roles in Anzio and The Secret of Santa Vittoria, and starred in the original version of Swept Away. In 1971, he appeared in E le stelle stanno a guardare, a television adaptation of A. J. Cronin's novel, The Stars Look Down.

In 1976, he starred in Seven Beauties, for which he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor, which is unusual in that his performance was given entirely in Italian. He dubbed Jack Nicholson's voice in the Italian release of both The Shining and Batman; he is the official Italian dubber of Al Pacino. His fluency in English has brought him a number of featured roles in Hollywood productions, most notably as Inspector Pazzi in Hannibal. He has also appeared in A Walk in the Clouds and Man on Fire.

Giannini's best-known starring roles have been in films directed by Lina Wertmuller. In addition to Swept Away and Seven Beauties, he also appeared in The Seduction of Mimi, Love and Anarchy, A Night Full of Rain, and Francesca e Nunziata.

He played the role of the protective father, Alberto Aragon, in A Walk in the Clouds in 1995.[1] He played the Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV in the 2000 Dune miniseries. In 2002, he starred in the horror film Darkness.

Perhaps his best-known recent role is as French agent Rene Mathis in the 21st and 22nd James Bond films, Casino Royale and the sequel, Quantum of Solace.

Giannini has a son, Adriano Giannini, who is also an actor and dubber.(Here)
