Fun with Nuns #8

Whenever you talk of Lucio Fulci, you immediately think of the his role as the Godfather of Gore. Films like Zombie and The House by the Cemetery are more well known by this director, but he made many films before that were comedies and westerns. This is one of his satirical comedies that is both surreal and a major did at the Catholic Church and Italian politics.

I would not presume to get all of the jokes in this film, as most are not known outside of Italy, but it was funny enough when they lampooned the Catholic Church and their involvement in Italian politics. There are also laughs aplenty at the military and the police as they attempt to stage a coup. I would not like to give away military secrets, but the clandestine operations in this film remind me so much of what our country does to it's "friends," and vice versa. The unique method of "canonization" practiced by the Church and the Mafia is hilarious.

There is even a nunspoitation aspect to this film as the Presidential candidate goes to a convent to get treatment for his particular paraphilia, and manages to deflower 21 nuns in a single night. His dreams had nuns in lace habits that exposed their breasts and buttocks so that he could grab them. A nun who got left out managed to find him and they enjoyed a night of passion.

This was hilarious and sexy and surreal and irreverent. Fulci at his best.

Pretty much. Fulci dabbled in splatter gore, spaghtetti westerns, gangster films, etc. I just finished watching Contraband which wasn't a bad film although I'm more inclined to rent Fulci's splatter gore films although The Eroticist sounds fairly amusing. This one should be a pretty clever romp. Thanks again!
