This must be one of the most erotic films ever made,if you like this , you must see the rest of Tinto Brass movies. Claudia Koll are playing an excellent roll, and she is SO sexy This film are very erotic , without going over the fine line between erotic and porn. I have seen and have most of the Tinto Brass erotic movies that are made , and I must say that I like that kind of movies where the ladies are natural and not filled up with silicon. So if you want an erotic ,sexy,hot movie, just get one of Tinto Brass and your evening will be saved. I have seen a lot of other erotic movies form all over the world, and I must say that I liked the erotic movies that came out in the USA in the 1970 was more erotic than the movies that are coming out today. todays movies have no humor.
call me crass, but i preferred the higher titillation factor of
"Cheeky", another anally fixated comedy from tinto brass...
although "all ladies do it" has some witty moments (when compared to say, "cheeky"), they are destroyed by the hateful dubbing... i'm sure this movie has more appeal in its native language... next time someone transfers this to a boxed set, USE SUBTITLES! there are not enough genuinely erotic or explicit moments... it teases, to be sure, but the centerpiece of the movie is distinctly uninviting... a huge carnal disco on the outskirts of town, with enough freak factor to fuel the warhol factory... unfortunately, the synthesis of 80's dance music and bopping italians may make for some good laughs, but little excitement...
the story is virtually identical to "cheeky" and "monella"... the bored wife of an "uptight" man (in brass world, anyone who doesn't get excited by his wife cheating on him) is intrigued by all the sexual tension around her, and decides to live in a state of hedonism... she does maintain that she reserves her love for her husband, but it takes awhile for him to come around to the idea...
the main male character is horrible to watch... during the sex scenes, he grits his teeth, strains his neck muscles, and basically freaks out... not something you'd like to witness...
once again, brass uses all his trademarks... mirror shots, overheads of black and white corridors, seduction in the toilet, urination, plenty of derrière, and laughable philosophy... normally i would smile and accept his vision of an impossibly ripe world, but this movie somehow disappoints, even with low expectations... some crisp and bold colours though... tinto could make a fortune filming washing powder ads...
First off, I would like to warn the consumers that some editions of
this movie are on trade while being cut from some erotic scenes. The
exact timing for this movie is 1 hour, 32 minutes, 21 seconds, and
since the original Italian 1992 productions will come as uncut, the
covers might show indications as 92 minutes play, and that will be OK.
It is important to have the Tinto Brass movies undisturbed by censors,
otherwise the ART goes totally lost.
And ART it is, Tinto Brass movies are known for rich cinematography involving Italian architecture, Italian Arts, wonderful designs in homes, all brought warmly colored to us, and in these sceneries a plot will evolve which turns around sexual liberty. Claudia Koll (Diana in the movie) is a gorgeous looking woman by all means.
One particular scene ought to be examined at slow speed after you saw it at normal speed. That would be the entire tram scene in which Diana catches the attention of several men due to her wonderful looks appearing in her stunning see through dress. It looks as if Tinto Brass invites us to have a look at intervals speed, because then her mimics would reveal quite the love for the arousements she triggers, even when two guys dare to touch her quite directly while at the same time she enjoys a third man watching on, something which might pass your attention entirely when seen at normal tempi. Very odd indeed ...
If this scene is keenly worked out, in fact all of the scenes are. This movie must belong to the wishlist of any person enjoying soft erotic scenes.
I believe that this film is the best from all Tinto Brass' movies. It is funny and interesting, and, the most important, Claudia Coll is very good in that role. It is surprising to me that maestro Brass had never done anything better than this film. Most of his movies are boring, and even sex sceens don't help.
Tinto Brass is usually referred to as either a misunderstood genius or a talentless hack. Cosi fan tutte ("All Ladies Do It") proves that he's neither one. When he doesn't take himself too seriously (which, unfortunately, he does quite often) the man is perfectly capable of creating fun, well-polished, strict entertainment. Cosi fan tutte certainly slips into the realm of pornography on occasion, but it has a sense of lightness and fun that breaks the ice and avoids real discomfort, and even, in some ways, a certain feminist sensibility (though the moral of the story shouldn't be taken as a very serious statement). It's a funny, sexy, beautifully shot erotic comedy that doesn't drag along too much and should be quite a lot of fun for open-minded couples to watch together.
All Ladies Do It (1992)
** (out of 4)
Italian erotic film from the director of Caligula tells the story of Diana (Claudia Koll), a woman happily married to her husband (Paolo Lanza) for five years. Even though she loves him more than anything that doesn't take away her sexual desires for other men. The husband can't stand not being the only one but perhaps after time he'll learn that "all ladies do it". This is only my second film from Brass and his visual style is certainly on full display here even though his story telling skills aren't the greatest. I was shocked at how well the screenplay actually was because a lot of softcore efforts place the story second behind the sex but that really wasn't the case here. The message of a woman having the right to be "sexual" without being labeled "sluts" was taken very serious by the film. Brass does a very good job with the look of the film with some great cinematography and some wonderful set designs. The biggest issue I had with his direction is that the entire film comes off as a butt fetish video as Brass is constantly zooming in on women's behinds. I like a good butt as much as the next person but after a while it grows quite tiresome but the scene where the women decide to go skinny dipping is priceless. The performances aren't really anything special but they do the job and in the end God knows there's a lot worse out there than this.
Great cinema is a matter of many elements drawn from a vocabulary,
formed into a great weave.
From time to time, it is enough for me to dive into a tone poem on just one element of the vocabulary. Eroticism is inherently cinematic and the other way around as well. But it seems that as much as sex is used, it rarely seems to be simply erotic. By "simple," I mean something that may not exist in the real world, that is noninvasive and nonexploitive. That has the same purity that romance has in the date movie.
...which means it has to be shaped and conveyed with cinematic quality. Some of Brass's later films do this, I think. I like "Paprika" but that's largely because of the surrounding story, I think. Brass found a woman in a pizza shop and built the movie around her. But this may be his best in terms of cinematic values.
Its not for everyone. Female fantasies of this type are connected to bodies and for mysterious reasons we're all over the place on that. But you might look at this simply for overall effect, especially how the camera is not casual, but the woman at the center is. Tat difference is part of the engineering, and notable.
Ted's Evaluation -- 2 of 3: Has some interesting elements.
Maestro Brass is usually considered to be either most underrated or most overrated director in Italy. "All Women Do It" is his another, most successful exercise in stylish porn, with anal fetish and ridiculous morality. Not sexy, but that, kind of, is the point.Has a certain innocent charm, but then again, nothing more than just a porn film. *
I heard Tinto Brass did eroticism, fine. I heard he was a real artist using his film like a painting, fine. I can go on about the good things I've heard, now didn't I see s*** in this. A stylish porn? No, a boring porn that isn't really a porn more like odd voyeurism. The eroticism was so over bored it was more annoying and I'd say that it detracted from the plot, but there wasn't one. Had I wanted to watch a porno I'd'ave rented one. I expected a real movie with some nudity and sex not the other way around. Because there was so little and what there was was just so inane I'm just going to pretend like there weren't even characters. Now the cinematography, it was a bad spaghetti western quality. N ow I thought that Brass was supposed to be better than the spaghetti western directors, well he's actually worse. The shots were all bland and migraine worthy. I could go on. Then to really just make you hate the movie more the girl as the most irritating giggle I've ever heard (beside the fact it is a total sound bit)seriously after the first time I heard it I already wanted to punch her. I'll say this maybe his earlier stuff is better, but after this I really would have to doubt it.
