Meeting of Italian exploitation legends
21 June 2009 | by (Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

I finally saw a English subtitled-version of this (albeit probably still a bootleg). Edwige Fenech plays two different roles. On one hand, she's a stern female magistrate who's prosecuting a hapless hustler who has been selling dog food as Hungarian goulash. The guy doesn't help himself much by crudely hitting on the severe but gorgeous judge on the way to courthouse (before he knows who she is), but he catches a break when he also her meets her twin sister(Fenech again, of course), a giggling nymphomaniac. After she shags him silly in a motel room, he decides to use the nymphomaniac sister to discredit the magistrate and save his own skin. He involves her in a hilarious porno version of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" and distributes copies of a photo-play magazine with pictures from the movie around the courthouse. The hustler's scheme threatens not only the lady magistrate's career, but also her relationship with her sexually frustrated fiancée. But the two sisters have a few tricks up their sleeves too. . .

Naturally, Fenech has a lot of nude scenes in both roles, but that is par for the course. She's especially impressive here though in her acting (even if she was likely dubbed, even in the Italian version). Fenech is one of those actresses that was so gorgeous and so frequently undraped that she rarely got credit for her acting. But there was a reason she was the most successful of a whole pantheon of other Italian and European actresses of the era who were equally attractive and equally willing to disrobe.

The director of this meanwhile was none other than Lucio Fulci. Although he was known mainly for his gory horror films, Fulci was actually quite an accomplished comedy director, easily on par with Fenech's most frequent collaborator Sergio Martino. This is probably one of the weakest of Fulci's comedies that I've seen (his best is "The Eroticist"), but it's still pretty good. Fulci's most frequent comedy collaborator, Lando Buzzanca, is absent here. The guy who plays Fenech's fiancée looks a lot like him, but he is unfortunately a pretty poor substitute. Still this is the only film he made with Fenech, and the meeting of these two Italian exploitation legends should be reason enough to see this.
