"One of the most controversial Italian films of the '80s, Devil in the Flesh takes Raymond Radiguet's classic novel and updates it to modern times. Dealing with the legacy of Italy's "leaden years" and the aftermath of the social struggles headed by the extreme left wing revolutionary groups, Devil in the Flesh caused a critical uproar upon its release due to its highly-charged political and sexually frank subject matter. Maruschka Detmers stars as Giulia, a young woman engaged to marry Giacomo (Riccardo de Torrebruna), who's sitting behind bars because of his political activity. Restless in her appetites and inner turmoil, she meets a young student named Andrea (Federico Pitzalis) and a passionate affair quickly ensues. But when the day arrives in which she has to face whether she wants to share her life with Giacomo or Andrea, Giulia makes a surprising decision."--Container

Trama: Roma, anni Ottanta. Giorgio, tredici anni, è il secondo dei cinque figli di Federico e Laura Forbicioni: è un ragazzino sensibile e studioso, diverso dai suoi fratelli più spensierati e superficiali. A portare ulteriore scompiglio nella già turbolenta routine della famiglia, arriva da Parigi la cugina Mignon, quindici anni, sofisticata e scostante, spedita a Roma presso gli zii in seguito a uno scandalo finanziario nel quale è coinvolto il padre. La convivenza tra la ragazzina e i cugini non è facile e l'unico tra essi con cui la giovane sembra legare è Giorgio che, segretamente, s'innamora di lei. Incapace di confessare i propri sentimenti a Mignon, sempre più deluso, quando scopre la cugina che sta facendo l'amore con un ragazzo, Giorgio tenta, ingenuamente, di suicidarsi con la naftalina. Ma neanche questo gesto serve a far capire a Mignon i sentimenti di Giorgio nei suoi confronti. La ragazzina, dal canto suo, farà credere di essere incinta per poter tornare Parigi: inutilmente il protagonista cercherà, poco prima della sua partenza, di dirle qualcosa
