I have to admit that I decided to watch this movie because of the title and because it had Monica Vitti in it. I had no idea it would turn out to be so much fun.
The movie starts with Claudia Cardinale’s character working in a laundry as her husband reads dirty magazines and feels her up purely for his arousal. Then Monica shows up decked out in black leather with a motorcycle. Soon the two are heading north where Monica says she has a man she needs to meet. What happens in between is a lot like Jacques Rivette’s Celine And Julie Go Boating. It’s just a lot of fun with plenty of cinematic references.
The scene with the mobsters is pretty funny, but the best scene is a short little sequence where Monica is having her black leather outfit brushed while she has it on. The expressions on her face are priceless. Unfortunately, she doesn’t do her own dubbing in this movie so her usual sexy voice is absent, but it really doesn’t hurt the movie much.
What can I say, I had a lot fun with it.
