Come Play with Me (Italian: Grazie, zia) is a 1968 Italian drama film directed by Salvatore Samperi. It was listed to compete at the 1968 Cannes Film Festival, but the festival was cancelled due to the events of May 1968 in France. The English title is not a translation of the Italian one, which translates into English as "Thanks, Auntie".
Alvise (Lou Castel) is a young man who thinks he is paralyzed. He receives treatment for his psychological problem. His father leaves Alvise for a few days in the care of Aunt Lea (Lisa Gastoni), who is Alvise's mother's sister. Alvise becomes infatuated with his aunt and Lea also reciprocates gradually. Lea breaks off her relationship with Stefano (Gabriele Ferzetti) to be with her nephew. Alvise promises to make love to Lea if she plays with him and beats him at any of the games. Lea and Alvise play a number of games leading to the ultimate game of euthanasia.
