A sexy Cuccinota
11 May 2014 | by (Uruguay) – See all my reviews

After Il Postino la Cucinota made other important movie El Día de la Bestia. But after it, except for a brief role in a James Bond Flick, she hadn't had the luck of past beauties like Cardinale, Loren, Lollo, Lissi or Vitti. She even was overshadowed in the media by Monica Belluci.-

Still I prefer la Cuccinota to la Belluci.-

The subject of this film, isn't new on the Italian cinema. A young second wife have sex with his husband young son.

So I suppose that was the reason that this film isn't famous.

Unlike other Italian beauties, la Cuccinota is full dressed in all the movies. Still she her voluptuous figure and talent makes this film erotic.

She looks sexy in very long nightdresses.-

The movies benefited also by a beautiful cinematography, beautiful places and strong performances specially of Lazar Litovski as the husband.-
