Italian sex comedy is fun, innocent, and loaded with nudity
10 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Otherwise known as "Au Pair Girl," this casts Guida as a young (of course) innocent (of course) girl who gets a job in a house with a variety of people living in it who all want to get into Guida's bed. Gloria Guida always exudes an innocent sexiness in her films - she was voted Ms. Teenage Italy in the early 70s and that was the start of her film career.

Even when taking off her clothes, she is never smarmy, lustful (the chief exception may be F. DeLeo's "To Be Twenty") or manipulating. She doesn't seem to realize the sexual confusion that trails in her wake, and when she finally takes leave of the house, she understands - finally - how much the old rich man in the upstairs loft really thinks of her.

She rewards him with a quick flash underneath her dress. Yet, it's all in good fun, moves by quickly, and fits into the Italian sex comedy clichés of the era.
