Movie Info

Mistakenly labeled as a neorealist drama in some sources, Seduced and Abandoned is actually a slyly constructed Italian domestic comedy (could anyone have really taken that florid title seriously?)

Audience Reviews for Sedotta e Abbandonata (Seduced and Abandoned) (A Matter of Honor)

Chaos ensues in defense of family and honor.
