Among all the "decamerotici" one of the less vulgar.
It was of, perhaps, 10, maybe 15 movies made in the 1972 inspired (they called "decamerotici"), in a way or the other by the PIER PAOLO PASOLINI's masterpiece DECAMERON. This one is one of the less vulgar. Played by very good actors like GASTONE MOSCHIN and RENZO MONTAGNANI it's full, also, of really charming starlets. All of them showed, also, completely naked (even if there's no any full frontal). The story (taken from the tales of the 16th century Venetian author called RUZANTE) talks about a cow, the "vacca" of the title named FIORINA (actually there is a girl called in the same way but she's not so important in the story), that changes different owners (it's the same way of ANTHONY ASQUITH's THE YELLOW ROLLS-ROYCE... in some way of course). Directed by a film maker who usually worked more for TV series than for the big screen, VITTORIO DE SISTI. Good crew with names like the Academy Award Winner GABRIELLA CRISTIANI (edition) and the celebrated Academy Awards nominated musician ENNIO MORRICONE. That's all.
