La chiave (internationally released as The Key) is a 1983 Italian erotic film directed by Tinto Brass . It is based on the novel Kagi by Jun'ichirō Tanizaki. The film arose some scandal in reason of explicit nudes (defined by critics as "gynecological") and sex scenes involving a well-known actress as Stefania Sandrelli. It obtained a great commercial success.
