sorry for the mistakes!
Maschio Latino cercasi
We have a friend at bar who repeats "The thing get fatter”
(“L’affare s’ingrossa”) whenever there's a
small problem or when he wants to be funny. This sexual reference he
must have taken from this 1977 film, also known as "L’Affare
s’ingrossa”." It must be said that he is funnier than this
Giovanni Narzisi is one that in the world of cinema has occupied more
than photography that other and he was seated behind the camera, only
twice: the first in 1966 with "Djurado" a western that echoes "Django"
and then with this work .
For some reason we do not know, Narzisi is in a rich production, full
of big names, badly exploited by his bad script. A cast of super star,
not only of the Italian erotic comedy, but also cinema and theater in
general. And music. And from there we start with music by Lelio
Luttazzi accompanying the five stories that make up "Maschio Latino
Cercasi". Five stories comic/grotesque with sex theme, the desire to do
it and with the male (jerk) Latin. Almost all would have a good
potential (and few ideas, we already saw and meet again into other
films) but Narzisi always for some unknown reason, manages to throw
everything out with trivial developments or silly end.
The first segment stars Gianfranco D'Angelo, who is a so-called
German tourist in search of Lolitas in Naples. Vittorio Caprioli
showing him a "sex shop" really different (really beautiful idea) and
putting a man in his bed. That's all. Then it's up to our Gloria Guida,
in topless almost all for the duration of her piece. She is the lover
of a wealthy industrialist played by Gino Bramieri that proposes his
comedy style (and a few jokes). He elderly man tries to rejuvenate with
a miraculous operation done by Dott.Himler to go to bed with his
capricious lover. Gloria Guida, extraordinary beautiful, plays an
actress of erotic movies from the allusive titles. It is not clear
whether it is irony or desire to feel superior.
Then we have Orazio Orlando as the usual Italian immigrant (in Germany)
that for live starts doing the porn actor unbeknownst to his wife, that
she too, enters the hard world. Rambling and boring story, with
Stefania Casini as his wife and with some, further, irony about the
world of cinema. And then there's the trio Aldo Maccioni, Luciano Salce
and Dayle Haddon, in an erotic-legal history, with good Maccioni who
goes to the house of the two with the intention of going to bed with
the woman, escaping in every possible the legal complaint. And again we
are faced with an interesting building, thwarted by a final tremendous.
"Maschio Latino Cercasi" closes, finally, with another banal story of
emigrants. From Sicily Carlo Giuffrè and Adriana Asti when
traveling to northern Europe for a change of partners. The obvious
rule, with the woman at first hesitant and then fiery lover of the
beautiful Nordic man.
We do not repeat the names of all the actors, but it is clear that with
this cast could and should have more. Rather than the poor stories we
have a banal direction and an equally disappointing editing. What a
