Amore tossico

Directed By: Claudio Caligari


To make Amore tossico, director Claudio Caligari lived with some drug addicts for several months. He understood their dynamics, learned their vocabulary, and won their trust.
In Italy, this is probably the most famous film on the subject of drug addiction. All the actors were former drug addicts (and some were still on drugs) and the film chronicled their days in search of money to buy heroin.
In the film, there is also Michela Mioni‘s nude debut, indeed her debut as an actress, because this was her first – and last – film.
