Frivolous LolaMovie • Cult movies
17/02/2014, Didier BECU
Some days ago we reviewed Cheeky by Tinto Brass. What has been said then can easily repeated be here as there’s only one reason why this movie has been made: to show female beauty. Just like David Hamilton (Tendres Cousines) or Russ Meyer, Brass has been accused of exploiting the female body. That’s surely one of the most stupid remarks you can think of when talking about his erotic art. Brass surely wanted to “shock” the public by showing some body parts other directors hide, but his style was never vulgar as he always had respect for women.
Today these movies seem a bit dated (just because our poor eye is used to see more radical images), but they contain a certain charm that transforms them into cult.
As always the story is rather ridiculous, but who had expected something different? Somewhere in the fifties a young frivolous girl (Anna Ammirati) wants to loose her virginity. The girl might be a blinding beauty, but it’s not so easy to give her body away as the inhabitants from the small village are stuck to their traditional norms. Will she convince them? You know the answer!
Frivolous Lola is now out on Blu-ray, and is just like Cheeky available on Arrow.
