Synopsis: A sexually adventurous young woman gets a job as a radio host. She retells for her audience every last detail of her sexual rendezvous.
The screenplay for Sexy Radio was adapted from María Jaén’s novel titled ‘Amorrada al piló’. The plot is essentially Emanuelle at a radio station. The lead character Marta spends the entire film going from one sexual escapade to the next. To the film’s credit by the third act there is an attempt to shake things up. Marta meets a man who she find a deeper connection with. Will she continue her promiscuous ways or will she finally settle down?
Even though no time is spent building up any of the characters. This is not really that big of an issue. Since the film relies heavily on the psychical attributes its lead actress Laura Conti. Than any actual depth from her performance. Pacing wise things move at a brisk enough pace that things never get dull. Ultimately despite its familiarity Sexy Radio is enjoyable romp that more than lives up to the potential of its premise.
Sexy Radio is presented in a 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen. Framing wise the image does not look cramped. The source used for this transfer looks like a worn print that has print debris that varies in degree throughout. There are a few instances where the print damage flares up. Colors tend to look muted, black levels are average at best, except for close ups and details tend to look soft.
This release comes with one audio option, a Dolby Digital mono mix in Italian. Background noise is kept to a minimum and dialog is generally clear. Range wise the audio mix is limited and there are a few minor instances where the audio sounds distorted. Removable English subtitles that are easy to follow have been included. it should be noted that there are a few grammatical errors in the subtitles.
There is no extra content. Overall Sexy Radio gets a serviceable audio / video presentation from Mya Communication.
