Juliet of the Spirits

Synopsis: Juliet lives in a beautiful house by the ocean. Her sisters, and especially her Mother overshadow her with their beauty. She is a spiritual, superstitious and naive woman. She visits a psychic seer who tells her she must follow the sex trade in order to be happy. Not long after she meets her eccentric and sexy neighbour, Suzy, who, by all counts appears to be a high class prostitute and encourages Juilet into sexual acts which make her guilty and nervous. A rare night when her husband is at home she wakes up to catch him talking to another woman on the phone. He calls out the name "Gabriella" while sleeping, but when she questions him he lies his way out of it. She finds out who Gabriella is and fears her husband will leave her. Juliet begins having visions who accuse and terrorize her. The pinnacle of the visions comes at the end where it is implied she realizes she would be better off without her husband and is ultimately emotionally emancipated.

JULIET OF THE SPIRITS

- The candles, signora?

- No, she'll do it.

Right. I'll light them.

Is it the red?

I like the blond one better.

Teresina, I can decide myself.

Sorry, signora.

I love the blond one.

But this one suits you, too.

- What shoes, signora?

- I'm wearing them, Teresina!

I really wanted to give you a present,

but I sent my money home.

Never mind. Next time.

This one looks really pretty on you.

It doesn't! I look awful.

I won't wear any.

I'm sick of this dress!

Throw it out.

This thing too!

Here, you can have it.

Signora, do you know what you're getting

for your anniversary?

Your gift for him is so beautiful.

Signora, your husband's here!

Get off the bed, you!

Hurry, he's in the garden!

Let me try it.

Teresina, quick, my dress!

You know, signora,

I feel so excited.

How beautiful!

Is the other room all set?

- Is it all right?

- Light the candles.

His gift is under his napkin.

You've only one earring on!

I left it in the bathroom.

Get it, please.

Turn off the lights.

What's the matter?

The power's out?

What's happening?

What are you all doing there?

You're right! I'm so sorry.

It's so beastly of me!

To think I even wrote it down.

But I have a surprise, too.

Welcome, everyone!

It's our wedding anniversary.

Juliet, look who's here!

Happy anniversary!

It's their anniversary. Look.

- Lights!

- Look what your friend Val brought you.

Thanks. What is it?

It's a charm against spirits!

You must hang it here.

- Hi, Juliet.

- Let me look at you!

It's been 15 years, my friends!

That dog's been so nervous

for the past two or three days. Down!

That's Genius, the greatest

clairvoyant on earth.

I know everything about you.

You're an Aquarius, right?

Lots of famous people are.

- Always a pleasure to see you!

- Don't be bothersome!

Astrology is a fascinating science!

Say, girls! What's cooking?

Juliet, make us something.

- Well, what?

- Anything.

They've made up.

He opens his mouth

and I get angry. It's so stupid!

I'll cook! I'll make my famous

pilaf la Dolores!

Have you got any paprika?

- Red pepper.

- Even better.

- Let me help.

No, it's a secret recipe!

Sculpting, cooking and making love:

My three vocations!

Have you found

your conquering angel?

I saw you at Vigor, the gym.

Never been there.

I did some bodybuilding too.

Let's see.

Romolo, pick me up.

What's up, handsome?

It's all here in the cards, see.

Right? You're so mysterious

not even my cards can read you.

- And now, signora?

- Do we have to feed them all?

Sure, they're our guests.

Where's Juliet? Can I go?

Don't be silly

and start crying.

Genius, come feel Juliet's vibes!

You look like a doll tonight!

I've got so much to tell you.

Dear counselor,

your sister's doubts are no mystery.

The Indians already knew everything,

like the Egyptians,

the Etruscans and the Chinese.

Right, last night I dreamt...

I'm sorry.

This is not the right time.

Another time, Val.

Sit down.

He'll do the pendulum.

Clear your mind of all thoughts.

Take off my jacket.

Yes, maestro.

Things are taking a good turn!

A strong magnetic charge!

This house...

who lived here before you?

The charge's positive, see?

It's moving clockwise.

- Who's there?

- Me!

It's not a good time.

- What's up?

- Nothing!

Are you bad-mouthing me?

What's up?

Don't just walk in. It's a shock!

Sorry for bringing so many people,

They dropped by.

What could I do?

It's fine.

They're all very nice.

Giorgio.

Do you love me?

Good luck to you both!

To the bride and groom!

- Are you married?

- Would I cheer if I were?
