Edwige Fenech in a typical 70's funny-erotic movie.
5 January 2006 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

I think it will be very hard for one non-Italian, or even if Italian too young, to appreciate this movie. You probably would judge it junk. But if you know what 'sexy commedia all'italiana' (70's Italian sex comedy) is you probably won't be so drastic and will rate this movie for what it was in the 70's. In my opinion is one of the best attempts to film with a Boccaccio novel style without falling completely in a junk titillation comedy. In fact, the goal is to titillate but also to entertain with a lot of gags (especially oral). But again, I think in the English version (avaiable in the latest DVD edition), you loose partially the funny side (because of the impossibility to translate all the verbal gags…); in this case you will see just a typical 70's euro-trash titillation comedy. If you are too young you couldn't understand why the hell this was considered an adult movie (Italian rate: VM 18). So I suggest taking this movie from his funny and libertine side. I'm sure you know who Edwige Fenech is, but in case I tell you she was the queen of sexy commedia all'italiana, and that's why many fans will give a high vote for this movie. I would like also to spend a word to underline the good set and location nevertheless this was clearly a very low budget production.

My vote is 6 (out of 10).
