Keeping it in the family
27 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

This Italian sex comedy is probably one of the best of its kind(exactly what's its "kind" is though is more questionable). The movie has a very decent cast and a good plot to tie the sundry sex scenes together. It is also genuinely funny in places, and not nearly as ineptly dubbed as many of these films often are. Renzo Montagnini plays a convict who gets out of prison and is picked up by a mysterious woman and taken to a wealthy estate to work as a butler. It seems one his ex-lovers (Nieves Navarro) is now married to an older wealthy man, and the mysterious woman, who is the rich man's half-sister, is trying to get the ex-convict to tempt the wife into infidelity so her brother will disinherit her. This hardly seems necessary as the wife is already a raving nymphomaniac, who is carrying on with her teenage nephew (the mysterious woman's own son). Then the man's illegitimate daughter (Edwige Fenech) shows up on a motorcycle (wearing some very 70's cheek-baring short-shorts), followed by the ex-convict's own neglected wife (Orchidea DiSantis), who is pretending to be maid. Oh yeah, and for some reason the ex-convict is posing, very unconvincingly, as a homosexual.

This movie actually works pretty well, largely because of the great cast. It's a little hard to buy the overweight, hirsute Renzo Mantagnini as a stud sought after by the likes of Fenech, Navarro, and DiSantis, but he is definitely one the better Italian comedians of the era and always an entertaining presence in these kind of films. Fenech as usual can't keep her top on, and Navarro can't keep her top OR bottom on. DiSantis remains a little less exposed, but is nevertheless featured in the standard low-angle shot while standing on a tall ladder scene made iconic in Italian sex comedies of the era by Laura Antonelli. All three women are good in their respective roles though. And amidst all the sex, nudity, and ribald comedy the movie ends up being a pretty effective satire of self-absorbed Italian bourgeoisie.

These films are kind of an acquired taste, of course, but if you like them in general, you'll definitely want to check out this one.
