Joe D’Amato – Follie di notte (1978)

Quote:
Given Joe D’Amato’s prodigious work-rate and his willingness to engage with just about any filone, it comes as little surprise that he should have made a mondo film, Follie di Notte.

The closest points of comparison are probably the two Jimmy Matheus / Bruno Mattei entries hosted by Laura Gemser and released about the same time, Le Notti porno nel mondo and the self-explanatory Emanuelle e le porno notti nel mondo n. 2, the latter co-scripted by Mattei and D’Amato.

Though Gemser is absent here, her stand in being Amanda Lear – a popular singer of the time, who book-ends proceedings with performances of a couple of her songs in a nightclub – it’s otherwise largely business as usual:

A touch of stock footage of Brazil in an unsuccessful attempt to convince us that the routine there, featuring a panther woman and some J&B bottles, wasn’t conveniently filmed in Rome; voice-over documentary type scenes of highly dubious authenticity, such as a black mass cum orgy and a look inside a S&M club filmed with a rather noisy ‘hidden’ camera where outwardly respectable men enjoy being whipped and humiliated; doubts over that Lear knew what she was actually commenting on in her bridging scenes; and the overlaying of the mass of dialogue-free material with stock library music, much of it forming a Piero Umiliani greatest hits collection.

Being a D’Amato production, it’s also a touch more sexually explicit than Mattei’s films and others of the time, with brief masturbation and fellatio shots amongst the simulated fumblings between the likes of two ‘primitive’ dancers and a couple of ‘lesbian’ ‘ballerinas’.

  1. I’m looking for a film called Calde Labbra, with Leonora Fani. I think there are a few different cuts/running times in both softcore and hardcore versions. Thanks! https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074265/
