Did You Know?
Tinto Brass met his leading lady, Anna Ammirati, when he accidentally crashed his car into her as she was bicycling. Though she was unharmed, Anna jokingly told Tinto that unless he cast her in his latest film, she would report him to the police.
A woman's juices are the best disinfectant.
Great Movie for Voyeurs
There are a lot of people who get turned on by voyeuristic shots –
shots of the vagina from the rear, transparent clothing etc. Tinto
Brass is the ace director for such movies. Monella is full of such
shots. Lots of people think that his movies are nothing but XXX, I
differ in their opinion.
All of us enjoy sex; priests and human rights people have made sex a
taboo, so the general public think that showing such movies is not good
to the society. In reality, it's the image that is present in people's
mind. If the open up and think about this in the director's point of
view, they will enjoy this movie to the fullest.
Tinto Brass had vision, he knew people are turned on by such movies and
he directed it to such perfection that you will be his ardent fan,
I find all of his movies fascinating- 'caligola', 'le chaive',
Tinto is a great director, almost upto the ranks of Sergio Leonne who
is famous for western spaghetti.
This movie is a must watch. Lola is an young women who is very horny.
All she wants to do is to loose her virginity to her boyfriend, so that
she can go about have sex with others and enjoy life. The whole movie
is about her escapades.
I love the clothing she wears in the movie, no bra, takes of her panty
in almost every scene. Beautiful shots of her fabulous breasts and
vagina. Really, Tinto has done a wonderful job on this one.
Wonder why we don't have directors such as he in recent times.
