Diana is happily married to Paolo but due to her wild passion for sex, she regularly winds up in short lived erotic adventures...
This is the third film in the Tinto Brass DVD collection, and it's the least impressive of the bunch. By this point, Brass had a clearly defined cinematic language: Abundant nudity, cheeky humor, and an obsession with women's asses. In this film, our protagonist is a vivacious gal devoted to her husband, yet yearning to wander onto other proverbial pastures. She flirts with a distant cousin (ick) at a funeral (erm, OK), before finally taking the plunge (and we do mean plunge) with a creepy artist who's got a Tinto-worthy fascination with the female derriere. Hilarity ensues.
Claudia Koll is cute in the lead role, even if she is the worst actress Brass has probably ever cast. She's game for all the sexual hijinks here, which are pretty crass and unerotic by Brass' usual standards. The camera angles are close, explicit and intrusive — it's hard to argue that there's any highbrow intent. It's a dirty movie with a European attitude that stops just this side of porn. (Well, except for that one shot in the orgy scene. But no matter.) Diverting, but not that memorable.
