When Women Lost Their Tails (1972)
User ReviewsAdd a Review
While not hilarious, it was entertaining the entire time. Senta Berger's "two" alone were worth the two bucks. While I'm not sure what war these supposed two tribes were preparing for, the parallels to modern life where a riot.
The five dimwits, with the hot woman they "owned" lived a pretty good life inside a dinosaur. No work, no worries. A great con man wanders into their home, and cheats them out of a pig for a "cent." The first currency. The concept of currency, earning a living, having a landlord, etc., is there undoing.
The closing lines are great, about going from sleeping, eating, and getting laid, to now working all day, and too tired when we get home. "But, we're rich. Then why are we miserable."
However, with apologies to the PC patrol, it does have to be said that there were indeed two things about this movie which did indeed stand out, and they both belonged to Senta. And remember, this was before the days of surgical enhancement. She could easily have been a Meyer-femme, but she was much prettier than most of his "stars". Unfortunately, Senta's awesome pair of credentials alone are not enough to recommend this movie.
Don't expect any dinosaurs; a briefly-seen chimp is the most they can feature here. The story is a battle of sexes which throws in a bizarre sub-plot about the dangers of capitalism, most unexpected in a prehistoric tale! The pneumatic Senta Berger spends her time being pursued by Italian film regulars such as Mario Adorf and Frank Wolff, and in that costume, who can blame them?
