Storyline

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.

Not entirely worthless, but pretty close
24 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

This is the weakest of the "insegnante" (schoolteacher) series, at least of the ones featuring Edwige Fenech. (Director Tarantini did a virtual re-make of this movie a year later without the genuinely talented Renzo Montagnini and replacing the sexy and talented Fenech with the merely sexy Anna-Maria Rizzoli, which is definitely even weaker). Despite the title, Fenech here isn't really a teacher. I think she's SUPPOSED TO BE a piano teacher or something, but really she's just some sexy woman staying in a luxury hotel. She's the kept mistress of a wealthy politician (Renzo Montagnini) who neglects her(the idiot!). She is being pursued by the married manager of the hotel (Lino Banfi), the dimwitted bell-boy (Alvaro Vitali), and the manager's handsome son. They spy on her in the shower and engage in various hare-brain schemes to get in her panties, but it shouldn't be too hard to figure out who she's going to ultimately end up with.

Obviously, the main appeal of these movies is Edwige Fenech and other various bella donnas appearing with or without all of their clothes. But I've seen a lot of these now, and they have a strange way of growing on you (not unlike some horrible fungus). They are also not all equally dreadful. It actually depends a lot on the director. Tarantini was a hack by anyone's standards and clearly inferior as a director to Marino Giralamo or Mario Laurenti, who directed several of the other "schoolteacher" films. Laurenti and Grirlamo were in turn inferior to the true masters of 70's Italian sex comedies like Pasquale Campanile Festa, Sergio Martino, and (believe it or not) Lucio Fulci.

Montagnini and Fenech were genuinely talented actors, but this a long way from being their best work. Even buffoons like Banfi can sometimes be funny and Vitali at least tolerable in the right movie--but this definitely is not the right movie. This movie isn't entirely worthless (never underestimate the appeal of Fenech's incredible breast and beauteous backside), but it's definitely pretty close.
