Nineteen year old Lucy Harmon travels to Italy to stay with some old friends of her mother and to have her portrait painted. She herself has two motives. The first is to renew her acquaintance with Nicolo Donati, the handsome young boy with whom she shared her first kiss four years earlier. And the second is to solve the riddle left in a diary written by her dead mother, Sara, a free spirit who was eager for experience but shy of responsibility. Whilst pursuing Nicolo, Lucy's presence has a profound effect on the jaded emotions of her hosts and their houseguests, reminding them of the pain and pleasure of youth. Lucy's innocence stirs up a whirlwind of sensuality which, by the time she has embraced the solution to her own riddle, has changed their lives.
"After 10 years of oriental(ist) wanderings, I returned to Italy in order to film it. Only after 'Stealing Beauty' was finished did I realise that what was on the screen wasn't so much in the spirit of homecoming, but more a feeling of having started anew. Thus, I saw Tuscany through the eyes of a stranger, as I saw Manchuria, or the Niger, or Bhutan. Does this mean the traveller's demon has firmly settled in my sight?" - Bernardo Bertolucci
