Wow - late Sixties Italian Mess
17 February 2005 | by shark-43See all my reviews

Thismovie is a mess and is of its time, but man, what a hoot and what an enjoyable mess. They made it in 1968 and every costume, color, hair design and boot SCREAMS 1968. Rossano Brazzi, the male star of SOUTH PACIFIC supposedly took some of his hit movie money and put it into this crime caper/sex comedy - plus he stars in it, wrote it, directed it and produced it. Oh silly Rossano - the plot is absolutely ludicrous - a high class thief gathers a bunch of crooks who must learn the entire opera of La Traviata so that they can rob all the patrons of opening night performance of La Traviata - all the women will be wearing their best jewels, etc. The group of thieves he gathers are like a low-rent Ocean's 11 - there's the fat guy, the effeminate guy, the loud guy, the muscle, etc. BUT ---- the most amazing thing this movie has is a very young Ann Margret wearing the skimpiest of outfits and she is (shall we say) wow-wee-wow. But seriously this movie has everything - fashion shoots, explosions, car chases, bad comedy bits, sex, awful Eurotrash fashions of the day, sexist jokes, you name it, it has it!!! For those who like their EuroCheese - this baby'for you.
