Storyline

A new judge closes a cheese factory for pollution; its owner, La Noce, bribes a monsignor who points him toward an official who might fix it. La Noce needs leverage and discovers the official's taste for other men's wives. He sends his stuttering assistant, Albertini, to hire a willing woman to pretend to be La Noce's wife. Albertini finds a virginal-looking prostitute with a potty mouth. A train trip from Rome to Sicily has many mix ups, but once in Sicily, maybe La Noce's plan to compromise the official will succeed. All the characters converge: La Noce, his wife, Albertini, the whore, her pimp, the official, his wife, and the official's jealous secretary. What about the cheese? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Edwige's Exquisite Presence
17 October 2007 | by ferbs54See all my reviews

As it turns out, Edwige Fenech didn't just appear in top-notch giallo thrillers directed and produced by, respectively, brothers Sergio and Luciano Martino. Following her appearances in such excellent gialli as "The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh" (1970), "All the Colors of the Dark" (1972) and "Your Vice Is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key" (1972), Edwige appeared in the team's 1972 Italian sex comedy "Giovanonna Long Thigh," with winning results. In this one, Edwige plays a stunningly beautiful (natch) streetwalker who's hired by a doofus functionary of a polluting cheese factory to seduce a certain government official. The doofus in question is played by Pippo Franco, who had just appeared with Edwige in the even funnier and sexier "Ubalda, All Naked and Warm" (also 1972...a busy year for Edwige!). Fenech, despite playing a hooker here, surprisingly remains mostly clothed for the duration of the film, some brief topless flashes excepted. Viewers interested in seeing her more in the altogether are advised to check out any of the other titles mentioned above. What this film DOES offer is an extremely fast-moving story, some outrageous situations, some truly laff-out-loud moments, and a sped-up conclusion that almost seems like an Italian variation of "Benny Hill." No Shame has provided us with yet another gorgeous-looking DVD, with one unfortunate problem: The subtitles get frozen for around 10 minutes around 2/3 of the way in. And in a rapid-dialogue film such as this one, that's a big loss! Still, the film is well worth your time, if only for another opportunity to bask in Edwige's exquisite presence...
