The Landlord

Pretty teenager Loredana visits the horse racing track with her sister Angela and her aunt. She is so impressed by the dapper jockey Bresci that she bets her aunt's money on Bresci, who does not win the race. The aunt is so horrified by this that she dies while still at the racetrack. Loredana and Angela inherit their aunt's villa on the condition that they not sell it. Loredana and Angela come up with the idea of turning the villa into a hotel. After the renovation work is completed, Loredana starts to advertise. However, the lawyer Mandelli and the surgeon Settebeni get the impression that it is a whorehouse. When the judge finds out about it and Bresci arranges a rendezvous with the judge's wife in the hotel, chaos breaks out.

The Landlord stars Gloria Guida, whose character's name in the original Italian version is Giorgia Mainardi. In the German dub, her name is Loredana, as in the then-popular La Liceale series. She is assisted by Fran Fullenwider as Angela, a strict Catholic who must keep her fiancé Lillino from having sex before marriage, while at night she dreams herself into various historical roles as a sleepwalker. As with other films from the metier, the gags are mainly flat and raunchy embedded in an episodic plot. Fans of the genre will certainly get their money's worth.

Two shortened versions on the German DVD

The bonus material of the German DVD by Mr. Banker Films includes an Italian extended version, which is unfortunately also cut. Apparently, they only had access to the Italian DVD here, which has an identical runtime. In this Italian version, some erotic scenes are missing and various short raunchy dialogues have been removed. This version only offers the Italian audio without subtitles. Both versions of the DVD cut together are the same as the uncut version. The uncut version was seen on Italian television. It is noticeable that this version has short misses, especially during the reel changes, which again are included in the German version.

The plot cuts of the German version can be forgiven, so if you are interested, you can still grab the German DVD, as this is currently the best way to see the film after all.
