Biancaneve & Co… (1982)

I couldn’t believe my eyes: this is the ultimate italian comedy, definitely. Shot in 1982, at the end of the genre’s golden era, this movie exasperates all the key features of this kind of movies. It mixes joyous sex (the main character is played by Michela Miti, known as “Pierino’s Teacher”, who is in wonderful shape and doesn’t hide anything),trite humour (plenty of), characteristic actors of the 70’s (Gianfranco D’Angelo, Gianni Magni, Franco Bracardi, Oreste Lionello), low-budget direction (go see the Lord of the Rings, if you want), craziness and nonsense (the scenario is straight middle age, but they are talking about diesel motors and watching television). In one word: a cult.
