Funny, Uneven, Surprising
20 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you can stand the bits of overacting by Mulder-Brown, continuity and the editing problems, the fun plot and charm of Lollobrigida and Niven are simply brilliant. It's a great story line with some silliness especially with Mario Adorf's Professor Ritter's skin invention.

It's a comedic tale of a young half-witted lad trying to make big but with the help of his uncle and more than help of his aunt. So typical for the post-60s sexual revolution, it showcases a bit of raunchiness of its older charming stars. Industrialist Uncle Charles tries to help his orphan nephew Frank on the road to success. However, Frank might be in for more than success as we watch a ménage à trois take course with sexy Aunt Martha ending in a most surprising twist.

Niven is charming, Mulder-Brown is half-witted (but I'll keeping the secret on that) and Gina Lollobrigida is clearly at her sexiest since Solomon and Sheba. Jerzy Skolimowski directed in his typical eccentric style that won't appeal to many but at times it's brilliant and at times poor, quite an uneven balance.

This film has not been digitally restored or produced on DVD so it's a rare gem if you can see it.
