(aka 'All'onorevole piacciono le donne' or 'Obsédé malgré lui' or 'Senator Likes Women' or 'The Eroticist' or 'The Senator Likes Women... Despite Appearances and Provided the Nation Doesn't Know')

Directed by Lucio Fulci
Italy 1972

 

The Senator Likes Women (aka 'The Eroticist') is a strange sort of hodge podge of genres in the form of an erotic political satire -- three words that don't normally appear together.


The movie begins with Senator Gianni Puppis winning his party's nomination to run for president. A pawn of special interests and lobbyists,t he senator has dedicated himself -- body and soul -- to politics leaving no room in his life for distractions like women.

Unfortunately, this extreme all-or-nothing tactic has addled his mind and the senator's subsconscious begins venting his sexual frustrations without his realizing it. Finally, his luck runs out as he is caught on film grabbing the ass of a foreign dignitary.

Comments:

Interlaced dual-layered transfer on this anamorphic DVD. If you can get past the heavy combing it looks fairly decent t times with a higher degree of detail than I would have expected.  - it has optional English subtitles and an unremarkable original Italian audio track. There is an expected amount of digital noise. Good news again that I don't see excessive manipulation and the image is fairly clean.

It's about an Italian politician who grabs women's buttocks. The satire is at the low end, ditto for the comedy and the eroticism isn't much higher. I don't suppose anyone purchasing will have expectations beyond what you are getting in this package. Some titillation (or is that bum-illation?) and Euro-comedy. Sexy - I guess it depends on what you are into. Ohh... there's a 45 minute documentary in Italian with English subs about censorship... but more about the making of this film.
