L'Uomo di Paglia April 27, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Armadale, Victoria Australia  
"L'Uomo di Paglia" explores its subject - a husband's lapse of fidelity - without glibness or embarrassed humor, but with integrity and understanding of all three characters. It's a morally complex drama, maturely handled. Thanks, MovieDetective, for making it available.
