Product Description

Tinto Brass' Monamour, is the love-story of a Venetian girl and a Frenchman in the beautiful city of Mantua. Dario, her husband is too busy to notice his wife's sexual drifting, when her adultery "born out of neglect
and frustration" starts on the day she meets a tall dark stranger in a museum. An intoxicating mix of lies, betrayal and fantasy follows Marta into her personal diary where every emotion and passion is recorded.
Starring Anna Jimskaia and Max Parodi (Cheeky!), along with a line of stars of Tinto's previous erotic films.
Now in high-definition, the film has never looked better!

Disc 2 includes the bonus film, Kick the Cock. "Kick the Cock" is an old Dutch saying; meaning "Peek in the Kitchen," or something shocking and extreme, exactly what we can expect of Tinto Brass; the director and co-star, along with newcomer Angelita Franco.
Kick the Cock premiered at the Venice Film Festival in 2008, and won
"Best short film" at a Fetish Film Festival in Germany in 2009 and is now presented for the first time as a worldwide premiere on DVD and Blu-ray.

Special features include:
-New High-definition Master
-The Making of "Monamour"
-The Making of "Kick the Cock"
-Comic strip by Franco Saudelli
-Venice Film Festival Premiere with Tinto Brass (Circuito Off 2008, Media Group TV)

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Monamour', Mi Amore... Sept. 22 2010
By 4-Legged Defender - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Tinto Brass' latest US release, 'Monamour', is actually from 2005 (why does it take so long for us to get our sexploitation kicks stateside?), starring Anna Jimskaia, and is a sexual homage to the female form, like many of his films, this time even more so, and Anna is an even greater exhibitionist than any of his other actresses, bless her heart.

The story concerns itself with a newly married couple, Marta and Dario, whose love life seems to have stagnated since they got married only six months ago. Marta chronicles the sordid details in her diary, and Dario is too busy with his work to notice her sexual drifting. While away at a publisher's convention in the beautiful city of Mantua with her husband, Marta meets a Frenchman while looking at ancient frescos in a museum, and he pursues her aggressively and sexually right there. Soon, her adultery, born out of neglect, boredom and frustration, is in full swing, and she's encouraged by a female friend of hers who's also at the convention with her younger lover.

The two women attend a day spa and trade tales of their escapades while being pampered by two Eurovixens employed at the spa, conjuring up all kinds of fantasies for us to ponder over as the women are oiled-up and erotically massaged as though being devoured by their masseuses. Marta is now having sexual dreams and fantasies in addition to her carnal activities, engaging in a variety of increasingly perverse pleasures with Leon, the French lover, and naturally, hubbie Dario finds the diary she explicitly details her affairs in. Now things go from steaming hot to boiling over...it's one of those times when being a perv is a truly wonderful thing.

These are women, not girls, and they flaunt their sexuality proudly, libidinous creatures who have not just been around the block a few times, but have frequented the sewers as well. They are lewd, sometimes vulgar, their appetites voracious and lusts almost limitless. Looking slutty, talking dirty, behaving salaciously - what's not to love? Hang on a second, I'm getting weepy... OK, I'm back.

There's nary a 30 second frame within the film when we don't have our heads thrust into the breasts, asses, legs, back or nether regions of some delectable Eurovixen's form - this is a voyeur's pastry buffet table, a Lazy Susan of rotating sexual smorgasbords that's guaranteed to delight the demented appetites of undying degenerates everywhere. Tinto Brass knows how to let the camera linger over a woman's form the way Salvador Dali knew surrealism, the way Einstein knew equations, the way Monet knew waterlillies. Uncensored, unflinching, uncut, unyielding, this flick is mandatory viewing for all men who appreciate the female anatomy more than a night of ESPN. Do your self a flavor and savor the juices of 'MonAmour'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thankfully, Tinto Brass Has Brass Balls... July 19 2011

The second disc contains the short film 'Kick the Cock' starring Angelita Franco from 2008 (hence the re-release) - it's short, but a keeper, and so is she. The 'Spanish Dance' sequence is for viral voyeurs worldwide, and made me want to visit Spain before I die - actually, waaay before then. There are two 'making of' featurettes worth a watch also, plus trailers for his other Cult Epic films, but the second disc is the dessert, the real meal here is 'Monamour', IMHO, which truthfully, isn't that humble. Deserving a permanent place in your arthouse exploitation collection for certain. Thank Tinto for having the Brass balls to make these flicks...

2.0 out of 5 stars disapointing Nov. 6 2011
By M. Gay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
From the reveiws I expected it to be very sexy & arousing. It wasn't much of either. It was very boring. It got a two because of the ample nudity. Nothing else of note to say about this movie other than to say when they do an english version of an italian movie it should should not be cut. I think brass thinks americans would not like the full italian version so he does a toned down english version which takes away from the movies. Do not buy english versions of italian movies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Body hair is the limiting factor May 10 2011
By The Phantom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Tinto Brass (who, I think, has two too many letters in his last name), as he does in all of his films, really just made a feature-length fetish picture here. And there are positives and negatives to that. Here are the only things that keep this from being a five-star production:

1. Body hair. The staggeringly-hot Anna Jimskaia (seriously, one of the hottest women I've ever seen on screen...and I've seen A LOT of them) shaves her legs. Why the heck doesn't she shave under her arms?

2. Way too many scenes on toilets. Actually, one is too many if you asked me, and we get no fewer than six in this movie. Again, obviously a Brass fetish.

3. There's a VERY well-endowed chick in one scene in a restaurant and we never get to see any more of her. Highly disappointing because she's a scene-stealer.

Jimskaia obviously is the big seller here, and she NEVER is fully-clothed in this movie...seriously, not a single time. She's not always fully-nude but she never is fully-clothed either. WOW what a fantastic all-natural body, and she shakes and bounces and gyrates through the entire duration. Now if she'll just groom a little more and stay off of the toilet...

5.0 out of 5 stars Stands apart from others in the erotic genre Aug. 17 2011
By DVD Verdict - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
Judge William Lee, DVD Verdict-- Monamour doesn't have the most original storyline ever, but the audience for this film genre can do without the distraction of dense exposition and complex plot twists. Tinto Brass is exceptionally skilled at making his brand of sex romp and this film is a fine example. The movie's brisk pace makes the rather predictable story go by effortlessly. Plot points and story beats are observed long enough to serve their purpose and we're quickly onto another locale or scene. Each new scene is another chance to observe our beautiful heroine in another barely-there costume. If Brass knows how to keep the story details short and to the point, he also knows how to keep the sex scenes concise and fresh. Where lesser directors run their actors through a tiresome rotation of positions in an effort to make such scenes pay off, Brass is able to establish a slightly different mood for each scene and he's comfortable ending the scene before it runs out of steam.

The art direction is so detailed and deliberate that Monamour looks like the most lavish erotic film ever made but that's typical of the quality of Brass's films. The movie uses some impressive locations, interior sets have a dreamy elegance, backgrounds are filled with extras, and the lighting is as good as any first-rate mainstream production. Mirrors play a large part in the set decoration, which not only act as a playful visual motif, they allow cinematographer Andrea Doria to capture some very interesting compositions.

The accomplished cinematography is well represented by the excellent HD transfer of this Blu-ray disc. The 1080p, AVC-encoded image is clean and sharp. Surface textures are nicely rendered in close-ups and detail is retained in the gentle shadows. A handful of darker shots exhibit some video grain in the blacks but these few instances are not distracting. The 5.1 surround audio with Italian dialogue is a good, standard sound mix. The 2.0 stereo option is also fine, the main difference is the dialogue gets a slight boost. The English language dub, mixed in stereo, is a typical lazy translation featuring amateurish voice work and is the least of the audio options.

Extras for Monamour are limited to a trailer and a making-of featurette running about 16 minutes. In the featurette, you see Brass at work with the actors and get to hear his very precise instructions when it comes to filming the sex scenes. It looks like the actors and crew are having a lot of fun and, not surprisingly, Jimskaia describes herself as an exhibitionist.

On the second disc of this set is Tinto Brass's 2008 short film Kick the Cock (The New Maid). Brass fills roles on both sides of the camera, playing a dirty old man on screen. His character smokes a cigar while watching a maid wearing a fetish outfit cook and clean in his kitchen. At a running time of 16 minutes, this piece feels too long for this simple premise, but those who are into this scenario might argue it's not long enough. Andrea Doria is the cinematographer again and every shot seems thoughtfully composed. My only minor complaint is the flashback sequence, which is distinguished by overexposing the exterior backgrounds. While the light level still works for the subjects, I just found this visual trick to be a little harsh on the eyes. Otherwise, the 1.78:1 picture, also presented in 1080p/AVC, looks excellent.

The short film is accompanied by some more extras. Some poor location audio recording mars the making-of featurette but it's an interesting look at the crew at work. Actress/burlesque artist Angelita Franco speaks a bit on how she conceived the idea for the short film. "Spanish Dance by Angelita Franco" is footage from a burlesque strip tease performed in a club. "Comic Strip by Franco Saudelli" observes Franco modeling in a bondage scenario for an artist. There is footage of Tinto Brass at the 2008 Venice Film Festival and a teaser for the short film.
