- 1 hr 33 min
In the romantic comedy film Virgin Territory, a group of young Italians living in Florence embark on raunchy adventures. The twist is that the story is set in the middle of the Black Death, a plague that decimated Europe's population in the fourteenth century. The center of the plot, such as it is, is a charming and randy young man who galavants around the city seducing women. The woman he really wants, however, is a sexy young woman named Pampinea. His conquest of Pampinea won't be easy, though. She's also being pursued by a Russian nobleman and an unstable lord who is determined to take the young damsel's virginity. The absurdity of sexual escapades in the middle of a deadly pandemic provides the film's attempts at hilarity. Star Wars star Hayden Christensen plays the seductive scoundrel, and The O.C. star Mischa Barton plays the irresistible Pampinea. The film is based on The Decameron by Giovanni Boccaccio. It was the final film produced the prolific B-movie producer Dino De Laurentis. The movie has been released under various titles, including The Decameron, Angels and Virgins, Guilty Pleasures and Chasing Temptation. It has also been released in Europe under the titles Decameron Pie and Medieval Pie, in an attempt to capitalize on the success of the sex comedy American Pie. It is, however, not related to that film in any way. Virgin Territory was released directly to video in the United States in 2008. It was met with broadly negative reviews.
