If you think Italians are
the greatest lovers in the world, then youve never met
Don Salvatore, The Last Sicilian. Young, handsome, and
extremely virile. Don Salvatores greatest passion is
sharing his lovemaking skills with every gorgeous
willing woman he can findand that means all of them! Of
course, being Sicilian, Don has his share of family
ties, and is on the run from the law. But that doesnt
stop him from getting kinky wherever he can. Which, come
to think of it, is quite often
Francesco Rosi''s 1960 movie SALVATORE GIULIANO, starring
Frank Wolff, deserves to be much-better known as a
classic throwback to the Neo-Realist movement.
Unfortunately, young enthusiasts of Italian movies watch
only a diet of so-called gialli, horror movies,
Westerns, crime movies and sex films.
In the last category comes Joe D''Amato, most prolific
and best-known (alongside Tinto Brass) of the Italian
pornographers. His phony riff on Rosi, titled DON
SALVATORE: THE LAST SICILIAN, is just another insult
from his voluminous bag of tricks.
It was made in August 1996 (not the erroneous 1995 IMDb
date) back-to-back with another stinker, THE LEOPARD, a
lame take-off on Visconti. This time SG is a Sicilian
bandit from Montenegro, personified by big-dicked,
broken-nosed Hakan Serbes.
His right hand-man is Valentino as Spano (would that
they''d hired Vincent Spano from Hollywood), and the two
carry neat rifles when they aren''t shtupping every girl
on the Island.
Lame plot line has duo kidnapping the wealthy British
husband of the local baroness, after servicing said lady
in their patented tag-team double-penetration style. A
minor rebellion against the government is in progress,
but all D''Amato cares about is humping.
Ultimately Salvatore marries the lovely Giovanna (Cindy
Scorsese, as always I must remind "not related to..."),
and the wedding cues an orgy in which Valentino gets to
shtup the baroness again.
Along the way they have taken time out to have sex with
the baroness''s beautiful servant Nicoletta (played by
Nicolette, a wonderful Cyndi Lauper-lookalike -from the
neck up- in D''Amato''s porn troupe), and Hakan''s leading
lady from THE LEOPARD, winsome Monica Orsini, is
uninhibited in this movie as Rosa.
As before, chief fetish is the women all having sex
wearing thick stockings, a sop to the movie''s period
setting. Bad English dubbing doesn''t help make it
