Our leading Lady (Monica Guerritore) pukes in antipathy when she witnesses her husband banging another woman (in slow motion).  The fuck-fest is abruptly aborted by her cookie tossing and the adulterous duo leave the grieving woman alone and gutted.

Returning to her lavish home, the woman's maid gives her a tape
to listen to from her cheating husband.  She does so... in the nude.  Now, left questioning her worth and why her husband cheated on her with the local news woman, she's left hurt and broken down.  Filled with resentment and at a loss, she decides to hit the road, and does so in her convertible, abandoning her lavish lifestyle and unfaithful husband.

Along her travels she crosses paths with an Animator (Gabriele Lavia, "Deep Red") and after some coercion, she agrees to have lunch with him.  During lunch, our animator tries to win her affection by telling her about a cartoon character
he's working on called "Mr. Cazzino."  Equipped with his drawing pad, he draws the character, who is basically a walking cock 'n balls adorned in a top hat.  What follows is quite unique for a Eurosleaze title and coming out of nowhere, the film enters animation territory.  The film cuts to animated footage and we see a glimpse of the animator's "Scandalous Gilda" cartoon, wherein everyone are cock 'n ball characters infatuated with a vagina with female legs in high heels.

Subsequently, the two not so star-crossed-lovers build a tumultuous relationship (to say the least).  The woman portrays herself as a whore and demands he pay for sex.  He obliges and in turn spits on her ass and sodomizes her in a hotel room.  Afterward, he tells her not to shower.  This sets up an approaching scene where he tells her "God you stink like an old goat."  For which she replies "It's your smell you left on me," thus cementing an incredibly unwholesome sleazy journey of incredible dysfunction.

Until One 7 Movies phenomenal release, I hadn't heard of "Scandalous Gilda."  Written, directed and starring the multitalented and sordid Gabriele Lavia, the film is a supreme exercise in prurience and sleaze.  The characters explore their base banal emotions.  Filled with sexual and mental degradation, this film goes beyond the limits.  Our leading lady treats Lavia's character like a lower than low life form, breeding her contempt for her cheating husband on him.  She seems to want to pay him back for her husband's infidelities.  In one scene she pisses on his face.  In another, she fucks another man in front of him to make him feel worthless.  Calling their relationship intense in an understatement.

"Scandalous Gilda" is must see Eurosleaze!  If One 7 Movies continue to release films like this, they will be quick to becoming a staple studio in the industry.

Fortunately presented on DVD by One 7 Movies "Scandalous Gilda" has a 1.78:1, 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio.  Overall the film looks good, but some scenes appear more worn than others.  The audio is presented English and Italian Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo.  There are some instances of inconsistent audio, but this situation is not atypical to Italian releases of this kind.  The situation is explained by a message at the beginning of the film: "Unfortunately brief parts where [sic] missing from the original English soundtrack.  The missing dialogues are therefore in Italian with English subtitles.  These can be removed with the 'subtitles' function of the remote control."  Unfortunately there are no supplemental features but this doesn't take away from the fact that "Scandalous Gilda" is a gem of a release.
