sorry for the mistakes
Wandering between Tinto Brass and Michele Massimo Tarantini, Andrea
Bianchi, who signs himself as Andrew White, directs a film in which he
tries to mix drama and comedy, soft-core and eroticism.
It all hinges on Michela Miti, the 'Angela' of the title who lives the
parable of the naive country girl who discovers life through a series
of unforeseen events. A classic idea, which sees the protagonist spend
a good part of the story naked and in soft-core scenes, to the delight
of the spectator and that of Andrea Bianchi, who, all in all, does not
even direct badly, but is saved by the features of Miti and the
supporting actresses (who are also remarkable).
But apart from the 'fleshiness' quota and the presence of an
unrecognisable Anita Ekberg, the story develops slowly and above all in
a very predictable manner. The joy of sex, prostitution, huge penises,
asses on display, are things we have already seen over and over again,
and Bianchi merely replicates the scheme in a more 'economical' manner,
even inserting gratuitous erotic moments, such as the protagonist's
lesbian initiation and sex with a man masquerading as Harlequin (a
scene that seems to have been added later to lengthen the broth).
Angela and her sweet skin, travel one day from the countryside of
nineteenth-century Lazio to Rome. On the stagecoach that takes her to
the city, the girl meets Mrs Rocchi (Ekberg), the owner of a brothel,
who hires her and above all treats her with kid gloves. The girl, naive
and a virgin, thinks she is going to work as a maid in the Rocchi's
house, but finds herself instead working as a prostitute, initiated,
however, into the pleasures of the flesh by the other girls in the
Just during her first service, the robber Rocco, (hardcore star Roberto
Malone) bursts into the room, with whom she instantly falls in love and
After a happy interlude with Rocco, she returns to the brothel where
she is welcomed with open arms and where she is a great success. One
day she receives a marriage proposal from the richest man in town. The
Count. An old man who dies on the wedding night. And Angela inherits
everything, money, brothel and even finds Rocco. The love of her life.
