Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Prolific performer, in films since the age of 15. Muti's career has run the gamut from low-budget Italian erotica to glossy US TV movies and she has played important parts in several prestigious European productions, including Volker Schlondorff's "Swann in Love" (1982) and Francesco Rosi's "Chronicle of a Death Foretold" (1987). Combining sophisticated sensuality with an innocent, child-like quality, Muti was particularly effective in two of Marco Ferreri's psychosexual onslaughts, "The Last Woman" (1976) and "The Future Is Woman" (1984).
