Storyline

In verdant 1950s rural Italy, the seductively charming bride-to-be, Lola, has no intention of walking down the aisle as a spotless virgin. On the other hand, her traditional bread-baker fiancé, Masetto, has other plans, insisting on deflowering his beloved chosen one not earlier than the night of their wedding. However, Lola is impatient, and above all, unsatisfied--and under those circumstances--she never misses an opportunity to flaunt her smooth, well-rounded derrière, while riding her bicycle. Now, wild curiosity turns into bottled-up sexuality, inflaming Lola's fervent desires. Without a doubt, the untamed Lola knows what she wants, and she wants it now. Can Masetto stop her?

fun sexy movie
15 March 2010 | by johnc2141See all my reviews

i saw a trailer for monella on the cult epics DVD Bettie page dark angel and it made me watch the actual movie.the star;Anna Ammirati is so beautiful sexy and mischievous as Lola.you will love this Italian made comedy directed by the great tinto bass.its a very adult movie that does'nt hold back.its not a porno movie but a sexy comedy about a virginal bride to be who wants her fiancé to make love to her.i first saw a Korean cut of the movie which is censored and dubbed into English,then later the Italian uncensored version with Italian language that was great.i really have to say Anna Ammirati is so beautiful and sexy she should do more movies.she will give Angelina Jolie and Megan fox a run for their money.i only seen one Tinto Bass movie and really did'nt like it,it was the infamous Caligula,which was so different from monella.the beginning scenes of Lola(Anna)riding her bike are truly memorable.if you are a fan of Italian cinema like myself then you will enjoy monella.need i mention again beautiful sexy Anna Ammirati.amour monella.10 out of 10.a sexy movie,Anna also sings the song monella in the movie.shes multi talented.OK I'm done this movie rocks.
