In the wake of the success of Pasolini's Decamerone and Canterbury Tales a whole new (albeit short-lived) genre was born, and this is a typical example of these episodic pre-industrial sexy comedies made in the early 70ies, watchable but nothing special.
This film is prettier to look at than Pasolini's pictures - which does not mean that it is a better film. This was achieved by (i) picking a decidedly pretty female cast and through (ii) avoiding ugly realism and going instead for more colourful sets and costumes. For the latter everything moved into a later period and up the social ladder. To this context a vital ingredient needed to be added to make the whole package commercially viable: plenty of female nudity - after all, this is (mild) exploitation cinema.
The film music features Orff's Carmina Burana, although the ancient Latin/German lyrics have been replaced by Italian ones.
