Like the earlier P.O. Box Tinto Brass, Fallo! is another anthology of whimsical short erotic stories from maestro Tinto Brass, and like that earlier film, there's really very little to be said about it; the stories are for the most part very, very silly and dumb, and are really just an excuse for very pretty shots of beautiful people having sex. On the whole I enjoyed it more than P.O. Box; for one, the cinematography was more beautiful, and the lush, modern coloring really does Brass a whole lot of good. And second, it does away with the pointless and irritating framing device. A couple of stories - most of all Dupla Confusão ("Double Trouble") and Casos ("Jolly Bangs") - have enough subtext and wit to raise a smile, but the rest are complete nonsense, and Brass knows it. In his feature films he sometimes tried for more ambitious messages, for better (Cosi Fan Tutte) or for worse (Monamour), but in this case it's trashy erotica all the way through. Might be fun for Brass fans but not much to write home about.
