La Liceale, commonly known as "The Teasers" in English-speaking countries,
was the first in a series of raunchy Italian schoolgirl comedies,
the first four of which starred Gloria Guida.
This one is the story of how the central figure (Gloria Guida) loses her
virginity. The top contender for the deflowering is a student that pretends
to be a painter long enough to get one of his classmates naked, and
then he tries to jump her. He never has a chance with Gloria. Then
a new student from America joins the class, dark, handsome, and
enraptured by Gloria. (Hey, I would have been too). She is interested,
but in two attempts, things don't go smoothly. The first time, she
panics, and the second, they are rudely interrupted. Finally, she
meets a debonair business associate of her father, and he is happy to
rid her of her maidenhead, but balks at a relationship. Meanwhile, the
young man is still pursuing her.
Gloria Guida fans will probably find it worth the effort, but this is a case where I
found the sequel to be better than the original. Compared to the
second installment, this one has less
nudity and physical humor, replaced by more dialogue and drama. In
other words, it is a little light on the elements I seek from a 1970s
Italian sex farce.
