The first (and the only) time that a real seal acted in an Italian movie. Top of the trash.
6 January 2006 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Where to start? Have you ever seen a seal defecating ice cubes? Do you love trash Italian cinema of 70's and early 80's? It is really hard to make you understand what kind of product this movie is. I would say it is the best resume of all the trash-cinema we had in Italy, and it is good just for this! Basically is the classical joke-plot film, with one joke after another, but with class, if you can call class a farting seal! But this is the point: W la Foca is the 'best' example of the 'worse' Italian movie, and by being this it is something worthy to watch. In fact it was casted at Venezia art cinema Festival in 2004! And it was sold out! Not the same in 1982 when authorities that rated it VM18 confiscated it. Unexpectedly actors' performance is good (yeah, also the seal!). For those that are more than 40 years old is a pleasure to see all the most famous Italian player of Italian trash cinema. Among them: Bombolo, Franco Bracardi, Victor Cavallo, Michela Miti and two 'starlettes' at their beginnings: Lory del Santo and Moana Pozzi. For the lover of the genre it is a gem not to lose.

My vote is 5 (out of 10)
