Mildly amusing but very tame sex comedy
22 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

Lando Buzzanca plays a rather naive young man from Sicily, who comes to Bergamo looking for a job. And he finds one, as the errand man for a rich businessman and his gorgeous wife (Rossana Podesta). After a medical exam reveals that he is unusually well-equipped in the genitals area, he becomes a famous figure in the aristocratic circles of his employers - basically, no woman can keep her hands off him, and he doesn't exactly turn down any offers, either. Trouble starts when some of the women start getting jealous of the others, and continues when he sleeps with the daughter of a Sicilian barber, who demands that he marries her, or else....This is a watchable sex comedy with some funny ideas (the cuckolded husband who discovers that he enjoys watching his wife in bed with Buzzanca through his telescope, eventually bringing snacks and drinks to go along with the show!) and a long list of sexy European hotties (Podesta has incredible legs, but Simonetta Stefanelli probably has the most beautiful face), however it is surprisingly tame (only Sylva Koscina goes topless, for about 3 seconds), and too long (113 minutes) for its basically one-joke premise. Bergamo makes for an unusual and beautiful setting. ** out of 4.
