Erotic filmmaker Tinto Brass is here at the height of his powers, crafting an unforgettable fable of sexual desire. The Voyeur, based on the famous erotic novel (L'uomo che guarda) by Alberto Moravia, tells the story of Eduardo "Dodo," who in public is a professor of French literature but in private a desperately lovesick cuckold, married to the ever-more-elusive Silvia. His life shattered, he becomes an onlooker rather than a participant in life. Cult Epics presents the SPECIAL EDITION Uncut version including both the Italian language track and the newly mixed English language track

Based on Alberto Moravia's book "L'Uomo che Guarda" (The One who Watches - Voyeur) it revolves around a young Italian Literature Professor who has a preference for watching rather than doing. He has a very apt name - Dodo. His seriously hot wife gets so fed up that she resorts to extramarital affairs and finally threatens divorce. Meanwhile Dodo is immersed in a world where everyone else is happily doing it. His bedridden father does it with the sexy nurse who goes around topless and often bottomless as well. His students are all doing it, sometimes in public. One pretty student invites him over for a threesome but sadly he can only get his kicks by watching. At the local nudist beach, everyone is at it. When he finally finds out who his wife is having her fling with, there is at last a happy ending - of sorts.
Newcomer Katarina Vasilissa, a blonde Polish photomodel-turned-actress, looks stunning as Dodo's sexy wife. Thankfully she spends most of the time undressed and engaged in happy activities both in bed and on the beach. Cristina Garavaglia as the naughty nurse is equally watchable. Where blonde Katarina is smoulderingly hot, brunette Cristina is gaminely sexy. All the other bit players are equally attractive.
For softcore erotica, Voyeur is much more explicit than usual. There is copious full frontal nudity. Tinto Brass' lovingly lingering beaver shots are in abundance. I especially loved the Cigar scene (a tribute to Bill Clinton). Strangely, there are also a lot of birdie shots. And very rarely for softcore, there is a scene showing a steadily rising birdie, all the way up to full tumescence. Of course there are also various scenes of simulated sex. Cowboy and doggy. All looking pretty real. And very hot.
The DVD from Cult Epics is in 1.78:1 (enhanced for widescreen TV). It looks very nice with soft pastel colours, soft-focus lensing and a pretty decent transfer. Very clean print. However I believe, this was shot in 1.66:1 (like other Tinto Brass films) and subsequently cropped across the top and bottom to fit the new 1.78:1 widescreen TV. Very sad but what can I say. The fullscreen crowd who hate black bars have taken over the studios.
This comes in the original Italian with optional English subtitles. Make sure you get the original Italian Uncut version (in Italian), and not the separate English dubbed version made for the US market. In the accompanying interview, Brass makes clear that he takes no responsibility for any cutting in the American version. All in all a fine addition to the Tinto Brass collection.
can honestly say that I thoroughly enjoyed The Voyeur.
The Voyeur is an Italian movie based on the erotic novel
L'uomo che guarda (which also means voyeur).
I only wish that the video was in English, but perhaps in
doing so, it would take away from the quality of the movie
content. The movie, once you get into it is amazing! The
cinematography was beautifully done. The visual nudity,
and sex scenes involved were not offensive but instead,
I was intrigued by how sex and the human nude body was
so deliciously and tastefully displayed as an artistic tool of
sexuality through film rather than as cheap porn eliciting
The story is about Eduardo "Dodo," who by day is a
professor and at night is a voyeur of sorts. In fact, he
becomes so fascinated with watching others in intimate
acts that it soon consumes his life shortly after his wife
Silvia moves out of the house for unknown reasons.
Hence, "Dodo" searches out for the reason his wife left
the house that he, his wife and his father shared. At the
end, he realizes the reason, as it would become a break
through in his life that lead him to question very important
issues in his life and also his relationships with others.
This is the first time I've seen a movie from Italian erotic
film maker Tinto Brass. This film was tastefully done and
did not hold back in showing the nudity and sexuality of
each encounter, and in fact, it portrayed nudity in its most
beautiful form throughout the movie. There were no limits
to showing the sexual act between the actors and even
showed up close visuals of the penis and vagina, but
again it was done in such as tasteful manner (I promise).
"Public bush" was celebrated and admired by "Dodo" and
the men who "watched" the women throughout the movie.
The male penis was tastefully shown as art rather than
just a sex tool.
There were so many erotic scenes, and too many to write
about in this review, but my favorite scence was when the
protagonist, "Dodo" who in a bath scene caressed his
penis thinking about his estranged wife until he was able
to have a full erection. The cinematography of that scene
made the act seem more beautiful than offensive.
After watching the movie, I felt like a "voyeur" having
watched the most intimate and sexy film that I've seen in a
very long time.
I look forward to watching more films by Tinto Brass. I
throughly enjoyed the story line as well as the beauty of
the film itself. I have truly become a fan of his work.
Five stars out of five.
