Napoleone (Castelnuovo) is an artist bored of his married life and applies to work as a gardener at a summer mansion. On his way to Elba, he meets an attractive teenage girl (Guida) who attempts to seduce him and when he gets to the mansion, he learns that she is Paola, his employers’ daughter living with her mother (Anita Sanders) and stepfather (Silvio Amadio). The mother is soon attracted to Napoleone but he has a growing affection for Paola, fuelled by her flirtatious behavior and his passion eventually turns into violence against a mentally disturbed fisherman (Mimmo Palmara) courting Paola.

Critical reception
The film That Malicious Age was generally badly received by critics. Italian critic Paolo Mereghetti described the film as “unresolved”, noting the ambitious efforts to combine melodramatic tension, psychological introspection and class morality but concluding that these aspirations ended up getting lost in long sequences of silences and panoramic views.[2] The review of the website LogTake pointed out the unconvincing “awkward juxtaposition (rather than contamination) of genres” of the film, which starts as a commedia erotica abruptly turning to drama, and refers to the film as “uncertain, confused, approximate, annoyingly misogynistic”.
