| The inequality of the sexes is preserved
This film about a male prostitute called Albert (played by Peter Hamm) is not a nitty-gritty fetch-the-hypodermic-needle-out-of-the-s****y drama. Instead, it is one of those German sex comedies from the mid-70s. In other words, this is exploitation cinema of the silly kind: the target audience is male and the main selling point are beautiful women (who else would require the services of a male prostitute?) in the nude experiencing the rumpy-pumpy. Director Nachmann put in a real effort making the sex scenes more inventive and interesting, presumably helped by the relaxed censorship constraints of 1975. The comedy elements also work a little better than in the average genre flick, and they might have worked even better still had anybody bothered to tell Margaret Rose Keil that this film was supposed to be a comedy.

Especially noteworthy are some quirky scenes (mostly towards the beginning) in which our Albert is clearly at the receiving end of sexism. That is done very nicely. Sadly, the makers felt compelled to balance these scenes by giving the film a male-triumphant ending. In other words: the inequality of the sexes is preserved, but the chance to make a better film was missed.

Although the Italian title of this movie really is "Marito tutto fare" I should warn that the video distributed by Tabu Video in Italy under this name has taken the credits from this film and then combined them with a very different movie, i.e. "Kasimir, der Kuckuckskleber". The attached booklet suggests that Tabu Video were themselves deceived, because they seem to believe that Peter Hamm played the role of Kasimir.
