Tonino delivers now a sort of “road movie” entirely located in Milano during one single night. La Nottata has some elements in common with Scorsese’s After Hours and evolves around a very precious ring lost and stolen, and the chance meeting and adventures of the main characters, two very fine and independent chicks played by Sara Sperati and Susanna Javicoli. It’s very sad to point out that none of them are still among us…

Susanna Javicoli (the curly redhead) had one of the best loved scenes in the infamous “WC sequence” on “Action” by Tinto Brass. Famous italian actor Giorgio Albertazzi has a very curious cameo as a transvestite. Musical appearances from Goblin group (in a pre Profondo Rosso lineup) and from Raul Casadei, who was then considered the king of “Liscio”, a sort of trashy popular dance music.
