Not the best movie to tie up on Brass cinema.
Typical movie of Brass's last licentious period. For those who don't
know Tinto Brass I'm talking of his third period, from 'Così fan tutte'
to this repetitive 'Monamour'. Nothing comparable to his previous
period (from 1983 'La Chiave' to 1991 'Paprika'). Repetitive is the
right attribute to this nasty movie, that lost the originality of
'Capriccio' or 'Senso 45'. It is another movie full of Brass obsessions
like hungry voluptuous women, impatient to be sodomized, to be
unfaithful, to go with everyone but not their husbands. Incredibly the
sets are more or less the same of 'Senso '45', 'Fermo posta Tinto
Brass' and 'Fallo!'. So the photography. Nothing new at all, also some
shots are the same. On the background anyway you can still find out the
usual Brass' hymn to sensuality and lust.
More interesting is, on the DVD edition (region 2), the making off,
that show us all the tricks used to film all the 'deep impact' explicit
sex scenes (i.e. fake penis, fake prospectives etc. etc.). Anna
Jimskaia is Ukraine (just for your info) and was chosen by director for
her bottom As usual!
The plot is very easy. During 2005 Mantova Festival Letteratura edition
, Marta the deluded wife of Dario, a writer, meet Leon and start the
habitual Brass lust-driven adventure. If you already saw the last seven
Tinto's movie you won't find anything new, a part from the wonderful
location (I would say better than the Venice of 'La Chiave' or 'Senso
My vote is 5 out of 10.
