Just imagining being the object of this emotion rolling eyes, an unilateral lip curl on a beloved face, an unilateral lip curl, a sneering or bitter tone in the voice, I shiver at the thought of the chilly grasp on the heart, the sharp pangs of powerlessness and hurt accompanying it.

Riccardo Molteni is a writer day-dreaming of more creative freedom, instead spending all his time writing film scripts on demand to pay the bills and afford the kind of housing he presumes his wife Emilia needs and longs for. Riccardo, initially taking the love of his spouse as self-evident as the air he breathes, gradually seems to end up in a hallucinatory mist of self-deceit and longing blinding him, making his observations and musings unreliable and diffuse, a mental stumbling in the dark.
Is he by his exhaustive questioning and analysis of every gesture and expression of his wife unconsciously pushing away Emilia and even driving her into the arms of a another man? Does she only reflect the self-loathing he is projecting on her behalf?
Penelope is loyal to Ulysses but we do not know how far she loved him Loyalty, not love. The thoughts and psyche of Emilia stay elusive, like Riccardo the reader only discerns vague contours of her personality and motifs. Is contempt worse than indifference?
Sometimes we are our own worst enemy. Capri - the island of the sirens, of the Roman emperors, of artists and bohemians, where Moravia used to live with his first wife, Italian writer Elsa Morante between and - makes a fantastic setting and the descriptions of Moravia of it are stunning.
As the air to a bird or the sea to a fish, so is contempt to the contemptible, William Blake wrote in his Proverbs of Hell.
