The Sensuous Nurse is a comedy-drama film from 1975, directed by Nello Rossati, and starring the beautiful Ursula Andress alongside Duilio Del Prete and Mario Pisu. The film takes place in a psychiatric hospital in Italy, where wealthy hypochondriac Mrs. Sherman (Andress) is being treated for a rare illness that leaves her bedridden.

However, when a new nurse (Del Prete) is hired to take care of her, Mrs. Sherman quickly begins to mend and makes advances towards him. Meanwhile, her estranged husband (Pisu) shows up, also hoping to get some of her wealth. He's shocked by her recovery but sees the opportunity to take her home and have her declared insane, therefore gaining control of her assets.

As Mrs. Sherman's health improves, the situation becomes increasingly complicated. The new nurse finds himself caught in the middle of a love triangle, and Mrs. Sherman's husband tries to sabotage her recovery in any way he can. But the dedicated nurse is determined to help her, and the two soon begin a romance that may be the key to her full recovery.

The film is a campy and comical look at the world of mental health, sex, and the corrupting influence of wealth. It presents a satirical view of the medical profession, portraying it as a place where anything can happen, and the lines between patient and caregiver are easily blurred.

The Sensuous Nurse is a film that will appeal to those who love classic comedies from the 70s, particularly those that play with sexual themes in a tongue-in-cheek way. The film features a beautiful and charming performance from Ursula Andress, who radiates sensuality and vulnerability in equal measure. She's supported by an ensemble cast who all give delightful performances, injecting the film with plenty of laughter and lightness.

The film is also visually stunning, with gorgeous Italian landscapes and sumptuous interiors, including Mrs. Sherman's luxurious bedroom. The film is a feast for the eyes, both in terms of the scenery and the attractive cast.

Overall, The Sensuous Nurse is a fun and entertaining film that will appeal to those looking for something light and breezy. It may not be a film that delves too deep into the human psyche, but it's a film that offers plenty of laughs and escapist entertainment for those who want a break from reality.
