Movie Info

In the tradition of Akira Kurosawa's classic tale Rashomon comes this wild sex farce from Italy's master of the macabre, Mario Bava. Last night was a wild one for Tina (Daniela Giordano) and Gianni (Brett Halsey), but for the life of her, the confused woman can't quite recall how she ended up in bed with her handsome and mysterious date. Did the seemingly pleasant date lead to a night of passion-fueled consensual sex between Gianni and Tina, or did Gianni deliberately force himself on Tina in a horrific act of rape? Both the scratches on Gianni's forehead and Tina's torn dress seem to point to some mishap that may have occurred over the course of their date, but matters are infinitely complicated when Tina's overly protective mother and her nosey concierge chime in with two entirely different takes on the evening's events. Only when viewers witness the story from all four unique vantage points will they begin to understand the events that truly unfolded over the course of Tina and Gianni's lost evening together. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Bava has a real handle on the eroticism as well as the unique staging within the apartment building set.

Audience Reviews for Quante volte... quella notte (Four Times that Night)

Normally the idea of Mario Bava making a 70s sex comedy in the style of Kurosawa's Rashomon would sound so random and odd that I couldn't help but loving it. But then I remembered that such a feat would require not only a strong visual style, but the storytelling chops to back that up--the latter of which was never really Bava's strong point. Four Times That Night is kind of interesting from a visual standpoint and a departure from the low-grade giallo that Bava slummed with in the 70s, but ultimately it's just silly and contrived. Especially with the Noah's Ark scene and the horny building superintendent. For hardcore Bava fans only. Even then...
