(L'Amico di famiglia)
Geremia is a loathsome, physically deformed loan shark surviving off people who borrow money and by laying down the sort of terms your friendly high street bank can only dream of. Geremia poses as the friend of the family whilst bleeding them of every penny that he can. However, when a poor couple approach for cash for their beautiful daughter's wedding Geremia is smitten, utterly undeterred by the haughty contempt of the bride to be. ‘The Family Friend' is a stylish delight with a hypnotically heinous central performance from Giacomo Rizzo, who, however loathsome, always evinces sympathy.
