Made in the same year as "Maladolescenza" and sharing some similarities, this Italian tale of teen and pre-teen exploration is essentially an indictment of Family and could be described as "Maladolescenza Lite". There is some dark psycho-sexual material here, but it involves the mentally ill patriarch of a little boy's family whose sadistic impulses are visited on the body (and behind) of the boy's mother. A little boy (Sven Valsecchi) becomes sexually curious about Nene (Leonara Fani) when she stays with the family in the wake of her mother's suicide. In a couple of subtle sequences, Nene allows the boy to sleep beside her and engage in innocent touching. A dark, well written tale, "Nene" has a beautiful score by Francesco Guccini and superb direction by Salvatore Semperi.
