Movie Info

Based on the Restoration-era play by John Ford, the Italian 'Tis a Pity She's a Whore (Addio, Fratello Cruelle) stars Charlotte Rampling as the much-put-upon Annabella. Involved in an incestuous relationship with her own brother, Annabella becomes pregnant. This necessitates a quick marriage of convenience to nobleman Soranzo (Fabio Testi). Upon finding out who's responsible for Annabella's plight, Soranzo flies off into a murderous rage. Before you blame the "liberated" 1970s for the racier aspects of 'Tis a Pity She's a Whore, please remember that the source material is 300 years old. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for 'Tis Pity She's a Whore (Addio, fratello crudele)

Artsy, sexy and slightly pretentious adaptation of John Ford's play in which an Italian brother and sister fall in love but their romance is thwarted when she becomes pregnant and must marry another man. Melodrama pursues right thru the bloody finale. Although it's set in the 1600's it feels very much like the early 1970's and that's not neccessarily a bad thing.
