Movies That Fell Through the Cracks# 28


VOLERE VOLARE is a 1991 Italian sex comedy with a twist. Billed as a "Roger Rabbit" for adults, the twist is that the man male character is slowly turning into a cartoon character! A Woody Allen-type nebbish, he takes up with a prostitute who doesn't ever seem to have sex with her clients as she indulges their otherwise kinky fantasies such as covering her in chocolate. Eventually, he falls for her and, as he completely becomes the cartoon, hilarity ensues. I grabbed a VHS copy of this about ten years ago after reading about it in a magazine when it was new. Here's a link to it's IMDB page with lots of positive reviews:Volere volare (1991)

Thought I'd stop by and say hello after reading your comment on my site. I saw this movie too and enjoyed it as well but had completely forgotten about it until seeing this post. Glad to see so many bloggers concentrating on underseen movies. For me that's a large part of what this whole enterprise is about.
