Luisa De Dominicus is a Milanese piano teacher who moves to Lucca to be with the man she loves: Ferdinando 'Bonci' Marinotti, a city councilman campaigning for mayor on a platform of moral values. She is of the belief that Fernando is single, living with his ailing mother. This, of course, is far from the case.

The boys living in her apartment building mistakenly believe Luisa is a call-girl who uses piano teaching as a cover for her true profession, and word soon spreads among the building's dirty old men. The resourceful boys drill a well-concealed hole in the wall between Signorina Luisa's flat and the bedroom of the landlord's son, Marcello Busatti, allowing them a spectacular view of their spectacular neighbor.

Marcello quickly becomes infatuated with Luisa, but is also conflicted regarding her supposed profession. Eventually Luisa learns of Fernando's philandering nature, and after a vigorous misunderstanding, satisfies Marcello's unrequited lust/love.

School Teacher in the House, The

School Teacher in the House, The (1979)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Third and final film in the series once again has no connection to the previous two outside the title and the star. This time out a piano teacher (Edwide Fenech) gets tired of playing the mistress to a Mayor so she moves closer to him. Various men start hitting on the teacher, which doesn't sit well with the Mayor and soon all hell breaks loose. This final film is pretty bland but I actually liked it better than the second one, although I'm sure this isn't saying too much. Once again the key to anyone watching this film is the presence of the beautiful Fenech who once again suffers through material below her. I'm really not too up to date on the history of Italian sex comedies but I'm going to guess there was some reason for her doing this film (and series). Fenech once again steals the film even though she's given very little to work with. Her nudity is the reason people are going to turn in and she's still extremely hot at this point in her career. The supporting characters are fairly bland without them giving too much to the film. Once again we get all sorts of dumb sexual jokes, which basically center on various men having the hots for Fenech. I will give the production credit for trying something new as there's very little "teaching" going on here and instead we get to see the teacher in her private life. In the end this is certainly for Fenech fans only.
