Product Description

Hayden Christensen of Jumper stars as charming scoundrel Lorenzo di Lamberti who can – and does – deflower any woman he wants in 14th century Florence. But the only maiden that truly sets his heart ablaze is the sexy beauty Pampinea (Mischa Barton of The O.C.) who is also being pursued by an obsessed Russian count (Mathew Rhys of Brothers & Sisters) and a psycho nobleman (Academy Award® nominee Tim Roth) who has vowed to take her virtue. In a time when lust is contagious, can trickery become the ultimate act of seduction? Christopher Egan (Eragon) co-stars in this sexy action-comedy where one kiss may unlock a world of pleasure and anything can happen when you’re in Virgin Territory.

What if the Montagues and Capulets had lived in The O.C.? Or that lissome young cast could be beamed back to fair Verona? The result might look a wee bit like Virgin Territory a period Italian adventure-romance, starring two very contemporarily gorgeous young stars, Mischa Barton and Hayden Christensen. The film is a pastiche of adventure, romance, action, comedy, period drama, and mistaken identity, set in medieval Italy against the backdrop of the black plague(!). Spirits are mostly high, however, as young Lorenzo (Christensen), Pampinea (Barton) and their cohorts frolic in the countryside, away from the nasty disease, amid mistaken identities, family honor, and as much wild flirtation as 14th century Italy would tolerate. Which, it turns out, is quite a bit. Barton and Christensen look a bit out of place in their heavy period costumes, but they are lovely enough--and have enough chemistry--to make their longing love story feel true. Lorenzo has been bewitched by a kiss he received blindfolded, and has pledge his heart to that lady. "I have a love," he tells Pampinea--and holds her, pining, at arm's length. Tim Roth has a grand time in a supporting role, twirling an invisible mustache and wreaking havoc in town and countryside alike. Most of his lines are too raunchy to be quoted here, but it's enough to know his fiendish comic delivery is impeccable. Fans of films like The Princess Bride--and of course, The O.C.--will love getting lost in the lush beauty of Virgin Territory. --A.T. Hurley

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is something like a Shakesperian comedy, only with humor that's a little more raunchy. It takes place in Italy around the 17th century (or so) and focuses in on a sort of Don Juan character who is always on the run (played by Hayden Christensen). He finds sanctuary from the hoodlums who are chasing him by scamming his way into being the gardner of a convent. One can already imagine the mischief a lady's man is bound to cause amongst a slew of virgin(?) nuns!

Of course, as you've already guessed by now, there is a certain woman (played by Mischa Barton) whom he desires above all else. Only problem is, she's betrothed to, not one, but two(!) other men. Oh, what's a playboy to do!?

As the title indicates, there is some gratuitous nudity in the film. However, I actually thought there would be much more than there was, especially as they were constantly discussing the topic of intercourse. Sadly, Mischa Barton does not remove her shirt, but she still manages to steal the show. I look forward to seeing more movies with this stunning beauty!

If you enjoy British comedy, this film will likely be right up your alley. If you want to take a chance on a charming Romantic comedy based in a long-ago era, this film might be just the thing.

The wide screen edition of this film is a pleasant romantic romp. It's a silly bit of fluff, temptingly naughty, but ultimately good fun. David Leland who was nominated for an Oscar for his screenplay "Mona Lisa" and who directed the DVD tribute to George Harrison, A Concert for George, directs this project. Dino Di Laurentis produced and has comments on the DVD extras. The film doesn't totally hang together such as "A Knight's Tale" to which it has been compared, because it doesn't tell the story as well. Hayden Christensen, who was nominated for a Golden Globe for the film "Like a House" & starred in Jumper, plays Lorenzo de Lamberti, a rogue who is swift with his sword & swift with his other sword (bad pun, sorry). The film is based on a classic book "Decameron" and has Christensen hiding out at a convent where the lovely nuns are not shy about satisfying their earthly desires. If there is any religious contradiction here, none is alluded to in the film. Italian actress Anna Galiena plays the Abbess who heads a bevy of desirable nuns. Mischa Barton was a child actress in one of my very favorite films, Lawn Dogs. As Pampinea, the lovely girl whose parents die in the plague, she serves as damsel in distress. She is set to marry a Russian count played by Matthew Rhys, who plays the gay Kevin Walker on TV's "Brothers & Sisters." He gets sidetracked at a pond on his way to marry Pampinea. Tim Roth plays the bad guy, seemingly out of step with the comedy of the piece.Read more ›

I don't usually like movies set in time periods such as this but this one was the exception. It actually had a decent storyline and the actors did an outstanding job. Everything moved at a good pace and never dragged. Did I mention that it was really funny ?

I was wondering what to expect when i started watching this movie BUT i can honestly say it was kinda ok.. It's like a sex movie for 19-24 year olds. It was cheesey yet you couldn't help but watch at times.. I would truly have given it 2.85 stars...

I thought this would be a racy love story set in 14th century Florence. While it was, this movie had a porn feel.

Hayden Christensen from JUMPER stars as Lorenzo de Lamberti who beds every woman he encounters. It's not really work on his part as much as women are drawn to him. The one woman he wants is betrothed to one man while another more sinister nobleman is set on having her.

There were just too many tacky parts to rate the movie on a high scale. It wasn't a total stinker as I watched the entire film. I personally don't feel I'm the target audience. Maybe the younger crowd - 18/19/20 - would walk away with more appreciation than I did.

Funny and beautiful. Not really what I expected but I really enjoyed the actors and the story line. It has alot of surprises, definitely great surprises. This is not a movie for anyone who does not enjoy a humorous plot about sex lives of young people who say they are keeping themselves for marriage. Hot stars and Hot scenes. Must see.

Truth be told, I certainly wasn't expecting great art in a movie entitled "Virgin Territory." But I had an open mind. I had hoped for something light and silly, and indeed this film is light and silly--it just isn't particularly fun. A misguided effort to tell a Casanova story, "Virgin" is a period piece that owes as much to "Porky's" as it does to any swashbuckling epic. Add some bizarre Monty Python-esque moments, copious nudity and implied sex, and a strange narration by a superfluous character--and this movie completely baffled me. Romantic comedy or teen sex romp--"Virgin" is both and neither.

The film stars Hayden Christensen playing a charming lothario who seems to be absolutely irresistible. When faced with a gaggle of beautiful young nuns, he doesn't even have to work at bedding the entire convent. Every woman throws herself at poor Christensen. Needless to say, those of a more devout nature might not appreciate this movie. Christensen doesn't really overcome the deficiencies of the script. Seeing him in this straight to DVD clunker, I had to ask--"What happened to the promising star of 'Life as a House' and `Shattered Glass'?" Even Tim Roth, who adds class to any endeavor, can't elevate this film.

It's easy to find fault with "Virgin Territory," but I think the film's biggest issue is that it fails to connect with a target audience. Too infantile for a serious audience, it also misses other key demographics. Young guys that might enjoy the nudity are likely to be put off by silly romantic subplots. And those more interested in the story are likely to wonder just what there is to really care about. Those interested in the comedy might chuckle once or twice, but it's hardly a gut-buster. Mostly, though, viewers are likely to be disinterested. I know I was. KGHarris, 09/08.
