LA SEDUZIONE (1973): A Sexual Sicilian Teen Seduces Mother's Lover

In La Seduzione (1973), after Giuseppe returns to Sicily from his successful job as a journalist in Paris, he attempts to revive his affair with widowed Caterina; however, Graziella, Caterina's 15-year-old daughter, seduces Giuseppe with dire consequences for the Italian love triangle. 

Graziella used a number of seduction techniques, which made it impossible for Giuseppe to resist the allure of the nymphet. 
Graziella sat seductively, in a short dress, upon the sofa before she placed her bare legs into Giuseppe's lap

Graziella "slept" in her bed, in the nude, with her door invitingly ajar. #invitationaccepted

And Graziella and her "girlfriend" put on a lipstick lesbian performance for Giuseppe's pleasure

It appears that La Seduzione was, in part, inspired by Nabokov's Lolita. For example, in a New York Times piece about Lolita, "50 Years on, 'Lolita' Still Has Power to Unnerve", Charles McGrath wrote that Robertson Davies opined that Lolita wasn't about: "[...] the corruption of an innocent child by a cunning adult, but the exploitation of a weak adult by a corrupt child."
