A funny film about crusaders and chastity belts
21 January 2007 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

The Crusades are over, and valiant knight Baccello da Sernano is about to return home to his beloved young wife Ubalda, whom he had left three years before...with a chastity belt. On his way home, however, Baccello loses the only key to unlock such belt... Baccello (exceptionally played by Martufello) will encounter old acquaintances, like the inventor Capoccione, and meet new...let's say...friends, like said inventor's very hot but also very pious wife Genuflessa, while trying to retrieve his key, his honor, and his not-so-loyal Ubalda. I loved this movie, it's filled of parodies about almost any aspect of Italy, and never gets too vulgar or dull. It never falls into the "italian sex comedy" genre, and it maintains itself funny and spicy. A drawback is that, well, someone who doesn't come from Italy won't understand much about the film, mainly because every character speaks dialect instead of proper Italian...
