Great Movie for Voyeurs
4 November 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

There are a lot of people who get turned on by voyeuristic shots - shots of the vagina from the rear, transparent clothing etc. Tinto Brass is the ace director for such movies. Monella is full of such shots. Lots of people think that his movies are nothing but XXX, I differ in their opinion.

All of us enjoy sex; priests and human rights people have made sex a taboo, so the general public think that showing such movies is not good to the society. In reality, it's the image that is present in people's mind. If the open up and think about this in the director's point of view, they will enjoy this movie to the fullest.

Tinto Brass had vision, he knew people are turned on by such movies and he directed it to such perfection that you will be his ardent fan,

I find all of his movies fascinating- 'caligola', 'le chaive', 'monella' etc...

Tinto is a great director, almost upto the ranks of Sergio Leonne who is famous for western spaghetti.

This movie is a must watch. Lola is an young women who is very horny. All she wants to do is to loose her virginity to her boyfriend, so that she can go about have sex with others and enjoy life. The whole movie is about her escapades.

I love the clothing she wears in the movie, no bra, takes of her panty in almost every scene. Beautiful shots of her fabulous breasts and vagina. Really, Tinto has done a wonderful job on this one.

Wonder why we don't have directors such as he in recent times.
