Melissa P.

Synopsis: Melissa lives with her mother and her grandmother in Sicily. She has a close relationship with her grandmother, a heavy smoker, who seems to be the only person in the world who understands Melissa. Melissa's father lives in another country. One day Melissa and her friend go to a party at a school friend's home. While there, Melissa meets Daniele, a boy from the school, and has her first sexual experience. The experience is far from being what Melissa always has dreamed it would be, because Daniele forces her and later forgets her. However, Melissa has fallen in love with Daniele. Back at school, when Melissa tries to get Daniele's attention, he barely remembers her. He takes advantage of Melissa's feelings for him, convincing her to have sex with him whenever he wants. When Melissa discovers Daniele's true motivations, she takes revenge by having even wilder sexual experiences with him and other boys. She even begins keeping a diary to document her sexual experiences. Melissa's mother

"Dear Diary,

today is the last day of school.

The summer is starting.

But the most important news

is that Manuela and I...

...have been invited to the swimming

pool at Daniele's house!"

"I've waited for

this moment for months.

Maybe this time

he'll pay some attention to me..."



Could you wake your granddaughter up?

I'm running late.

Melissa, hurry up,

you're going to be late for school.


What are you doing?

Can't you hear me?

Please, can you do it?

I'm late,

I still have to finish getting ready.


All right, I'll do it myself.

What a mess!

- Sweetheart, the alarm!

- Go away!

Sorry, darling, but you're

going to be late for school.

Get out!

We arrived at 4 pm.


On the whole way there

I just wanted to turn back.

My heart was in my mouth.

- Wait, don't ring!

- Why not?

It's still early.

No, it's not, this is the time

Titti told us to come.

Feel this.

- I don't feel anything.

- But how!

It feels like it's about to explode!

Let's get out of here.

Come on! You've had a crush on him

for a year and now finally...

I look terrible today.

No way! You look gorgeous.

What if he finds out I can't swim?

- Stay away from the pool.

- And if he kisses me...

...and realizes it's my first time?

- Are you crazy?

With all the rehearsing we've done!

- Who's that?

- Which?

- The only fuckable one.

- You're here!

Don't let her run away!

Pin her down, Patrizio!

No! Please let me go!

Put me down, don't be a bastard!

- Hello, Manuela.

- I'm Manuela.

I'm Melissa.

- Well then hello, Melissa.

- Daniele! Come here!

Excuse me.

Well, I...

Fucking assholes, my shoes!

These shoes cost me

two hundred euros.

- Who is that girl lying down?

- Lavinia, Arnaldo's girlfriend. A bitch.

Don't even try throwing me

in the water or I'll kick your ass.


I'm going over there.

Be careful,

they'll throw you in the water.

No! She can't swim!

Help her!

Do something!

Were you scared?

Me? No.

I thought you knew how to swim.

Yes, I can swim, but...

I got scared all of a sudden.

But you just told me

you weren't scared.


You got scared.

Come on! I'll show you

the nicest part of the garden.

So you don't know how to swim.

I can teach you one day.

You can come back,

without all these people.

- Well?

- Well what?

Will you come?

- Yes.

- You like it here?


And you like me?

- Enough.

- What does your father do?


- He builds streets?

- No. Oil.

He's on a platform

in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

He'll be back within a year.

And your mother?

She sells bridal gowns.

- Do you have any brothers?

- No. Just a friend.

- You confide in her.

- Yes.

- Do you tell her everything?

- Yes.

And what will you tell her about me?

I don't know.

You look like a kid.

How old are you?

Fifteen and a half.

- Do you have a boyfriend?

- No.

Do you?

- What?

- A girlfriend!

No, I don't.

Are you a virgin?


- How many times have you been kissed?

- Twice.

Which one did you like the best?

The first.

Get up.

What do you want from me?

You want to kiss me?

You want to kiss me?

You want to kiss me?

You want to kiss me?


Then kiss my dick.

Put it in your mouth.

What are you doing?

Maybe next time

you'll kiss me on the mouth.

I haven't seen him since that day.

I've spent a gloomy summer

full of choking tears...

...waiting for a phone call

that never came.

I wanted to vanish,

to fly away very, very far...

...lik e my father,

to the other side of the world.


Don't make that face.


I'd like to see you in my place!
