perdone los errores
“Il Camionista” was a cult erotic comic born in the late
seventies. Mario Vergone (quite literally Mario “big
dick”), the truck driver, was the hero and I think it is useless
to talk about his imaginable adventures. "Teresa" instead is a truck
driver. Portrayed by Serena Grandi. Now, it is useless to say how much
these two things that are Serena Grandi and her character's profession,
have light the naughtiest fantasies, also because we are in 1987, the
golden years of the beautiful Bolognese.
Unfortunately, apart from a few sexy moments she remains dressed but
however she lights the fantasies of the characters around her.
Serena Grandi's boobs, it must be said, are not the only serious lack
of this film (I'm kidding of course, the boobs are not a central point
...) but also lacks a credible and pleasant plot. Perhaps the worst
thing is that Dino Risi is the director. Risi, which certainly needs no
introduction, is in a waning phase and above all in the commercial
circle of what is now “Mediaset”. The previous year he
directed "Il commissario Lo Gatto" which, thanks to Banfi, Micheli and
the beauties of Favignana, reaches the sufficiency and then, after a
couple of TV products, breathes good cinema with "Tolgo il disturbo"
not produced by "Mediaset".
Am I saying that "Mediaset" has also ruined the great heroes of Italian
cinema? Well, maybe that's the case, but from Berlusconi's point of
view, having names of appeal and a commercial product was the right
choice. And so, perhaps this is why in “Teresa”, a sort of
gritty comedy, Serena Grandi limits herself to provoking and it is,
perhaps for this reason, that the movie has a so easy plot. So
televised. And so badly though.
Certainly having Luca Barbareschi in the role of co-star, that is, that
of another truck driver does not help. Barbareschi truck driver! More a
life advice than a role for him.
To put a piece of it, in addition to a wild Eros Pagni, there is a sort
of pleasant Emilian genuineness that shines through everywhere, but,
incredibly Serena Grandi, born in Bologna, is dubbed. In any case,
Emilia is not enough to save the film.
Teresa a widow takes control of her husband's company, a transport
company. The business, however, is in debt of 80 million lire.
Determined to get up on her own, the woman refuses to marry Nabucco
(Eros Pagni) who could cancel the debt. So she drives the truck, hiring
the turbulent Gino (Luca Barbareschi) as a co-driver and with whom she
has a stormy relationship. Meanwhile, several other suitors propose
themselves to the beautiful Teresa, a gangster, who dies immediately
and an old German baron a bit stoned accompanied by an equally strange
family. Fairy-tale ending. So to speak.
Music by Dalla, Morandi, Berti and Casadei, but not even this raises
the fate of a horrible film. Believe me, Mario Vergone is definitely
better thought and more fun.
