FUEGO (1968) is about Laura (played by Isabel Sarli), a nympho who just can't get enough, her husband thinks he can tame her but can a leopard change its spots?, er, no, she cranks it up by walking through town flashing her knockers to random men, picking up strangers and seducing the guy who comes to work on the electrics, she also has an ongoing affair with the housekeeper (described in the back cover spiel as a lizard like lesbian which is a bit harsh, watch out for their feather scene together), basically, if it's got a pulse, Laura gives it a good time.
Isabel Sarli exudes a smoldering sexuality, a cross between Sophia Loren, Monica Bellucci and Nigella Lawson, big hair, big eyelashes and big knockers. The back cover claims that the director (Armando Bo) was the Argentinian Russ Meyer but he hasn't the wit or skill of Meyer but Sarli could give most of Meyer's starlets a run for their money in the heaving bosom department, a heaving bosom she tries (but fails) to contain throughout the film.
It's a decent film of its kind but it does have a ridiculous last 10 minutes that will have you wondering why they didn't just get a divorce. (3 stars)
THE FEMALE is from the 1950s and the director makes sure that there's no nudity aside from the odd buttock and some hairy middle aged men, it's more melodrama than anything and all in all I found it to be pretty dull although it's actually more polished than FUEGO with a crisp black and white print which compliments Isabel Sarli's features beautifully. (2 stars)
As usual with Something Weird DVDs you get some trailers (10 in all) and a couple of short films but nothing to get excited over.
