In my quest to watch giallo that not many have and bring them to you, dear reader, I’ve been looking into the pre-Argento years and I’ve discovered this one, known in America as Without Knowing Anything About Her.
An old woman dies before the expiration of her life insurance policy and a lawyer (Philippe Leroy) investigates, but ends up falling in love with her daughter, played by Paola Pitagora. His intentions aren’t good, but neither are hers.
This is less in the shadows, light on the murder and has plenty of Milan scenery and a Morricone score to liven things up, plus an ambiguous ending that comes out of nowhere and is pretty awesome. It’s not perfect, but if you’re seeking something different, here it is.
You can watch this on YouTube.
