Controversial Film Met With Boos, Awards in Rome

Posted: Nov. 28th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse
Rome Film Festival

“And They Call it Summer”, an erotic film about a man who is no longer able to have sex with the woman he loves but has an unrelenting lust for prostitutes that pushes him and his lover’s relationship to its limit, was booed during it’s showing at the film festival and, to the audience’s surprise, later received several awards during the Rome Film Festival's ceremonies.

Italian erotic film “And They Call it Summer” which was booed during its screening at the Rome Film Festival, scooped two prizes at the awards ceremony on Saturday to catcalls from the audience.

Italy’s Paolo Franchi won the best director prize for his steamy tale of a man unable to have sex with the woman he loves but who harbours a passion for prostitutes which strains the couple’s relationship to breaking point.

“It is brave filmmaking, obsessive filmmaking, uncompromising. It will be hated and loved,” said Australian director P.J. Hogan, a member of the international jury at the seventh edition of the festival.
