sorry for the mistakes!
Like all those of my generation, like all those of the previous
generation, who grew up with these films, I have hoped for years to
have a teacher like that. As always, when I watch films of this
sub-genre, my thoughts turn to disillusioned hopes.
I don't want to digress, but talk about this 1976 film by Mariano
Laurenti, in which the soundtrack by Alessandro Alessandroni and the
beauty of Lilli Carati make us forget in part the repetition of the
plot of the genre. It should also be said that Gianfranco D'Angelo is
not a gym teacher but a pharmacist and that Mario Carotenuto is not a
principal but a priest. For the rest, Vitali is the head of the moron
students all jokes and gags, flanked by Marco Gelardini, here at the
debut of a career full of school satisfaction. They drool over the
teacher, the substitute who replaces the old one who ended up in
hospital for the usual accident. The rest are the classic spied through
the keyhole with Lilli Carati giving the audience long baths (for some
reason, there is no running water), striptease, very light clothes and
full naked body.
The story is always the same, the beautiful teacher and the student who
in the end conquer her over among a thousand lovers, including Michele
Gammino in the role of a doctor. Trash and basically useless moments,
like the mixed-team football match and the aforementioned gags that
It is not all to be thrown away anyway and some moments are well
thought out. See D’Angelo's erotic dream with Ria De Simone (who
is beautiful too), the cleverness of the two protagonists who build a
periscope to spy the teacher and above all a slightly different ending
Ischia, where it is set and shot, could have been more exploited to
elevate the film, at least from an aesthetic point of view, but the
island remains in the background and often behind the billboards of two
famous brands that have obviously put money. As always.
