With: Yuliya Mayarchuk, Jarno Berardi, Francesca Nunzi, Max Parodi.

Seldom have five writers produced so little as “Transgression,” Italo erotica specialist Tinto Brass’ latest musing about the pleasures of the flesh. Pic is an inconsequential slice of Euro soft-core that won’t cut it for viewers looking for spicier fare, much less the hard-core action in some of the latest Italo sex dramas.Frolicsome would-be comedy couldn’t be more different from “Caligula,” the last Brass entry to land Stateside, and didn’t even offend the oldster crowd it played to at Palm Springs fest. B.O. prospects are limp.

Doing advance work for Venetian b.f. Matteo (Jarno Berardi), ridiculously effervescent Carla (Yuliya Mayarchuk) rents a Thames-side flat for both of them from ultra-sexed agent Moira (Francesca Nunzi). Before Carla knows it, Moira is jumping her bones and — in hoary tradition of narrative erotica — introducing her to a new world of experimental, spontaneous sex. Matteo finds his jealousy is the best aphrodisiac, thus establishing pic’s dubious premise that the couple who cheat on each other love each other more. Brass reaffirms his massive obsession with female rear ends, as well as unintentionally comic feeling that he’s very much stuck in the ’70s.
