Onde( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in Italian and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This film follows the development of a romantic relationship between a blind musician and a very attractive girl whose face is extensively blemished by a large reddish-purple stain on her skin, to the extent that some persons simply avert their eyes in a shock when noticing her in public. She often conceals her reddish-purple stain by makeup cream. She brings an ingrained interpersonal mistrust into her new love relationship ("once he would know about my defect, he would no longer love me"), and he also struggles with an equivalent problem ("most people befriend me only out of a naive curiosity but they eventually become bored with a blind man"). Their social insecurity competes with their intense hunger for affection."--IMDb
