Great Film overall
All of these films share one commonality, that being a kind of emotional center that humanizes a cast of monsters.
The film's masterful storytelling did its job. The message was clear. No need to overdo.
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.
The scoring, of course, reflects my own personal taste but I do feel that the film almost completely successful in what it sets out to achieve. It's a mischievous, amusing, jolly sexy romp that doesn't miss out on taking a few sideswipes at Italian society (affectionately of course!). If there were a poll to find the ten best female bum shots in cinema, I am pretty certain this film would occupy all ten slots, and half of them probably just in the swirling, joyful, abandoned opening cycling sequence. Lola grins and squeaks with delight as she races along bum in the air to the astonishment, amusement and enjoyment of all. The older man (father?) with Lola scenes, made one a little uncomfortable and similarly the peeping tom and the lost virginity but these seemed to fit within the whole and probably say as much about Catholicism in Italy than Mr Brass in particular. A super sunny sexy delight!
Cute but not too exciting. I haven't seen any other Tinto films, but based on this one I probably wouldn't go out of my way to see any others. It was mildly interesting to watch but in the end rather unsatisfying. Just nothing to sink your teeth into as a film. The plot was weak and at times confusing and Lola just came across as a spoiled little girl (probably intentional). But there was nothing to make me understand why her "boyfriend" was even interested in her, other than her good looks. The camera work was interesting and creative and there are lots of great shots of Lola in various states of undress which is probably the only reason I kept watching it - hey, I'm a guy, what can I say? But, to be honest, its mostly like watching a TV sitcom - light entertainment to pass the time.
This was one of the worst films I've ever seen. It's stupid, idiotic, insipid, etc. I can't think of all of the words appropriate for this "erotic comedy at its best." The movie was ridiculous! The actors are wooden; the dialogue is ingratiating; and the dubbing is, well, dubbing. In other words this movie is a car accident caught on film.
