la luna from bernardo bertolucci (1979) contains a fantastic disco scene

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Luna_%28film%29

the young hero dances to the bee gees "night fever" coming from a juke box in a filthy roman bar

this was one of the first times I began to realize how powerful this music was

I grew up in the 80s in Austria, Disco was seen as stupid commercial music, and I also regarded only soul and funk as interesting music

WOW! Real DISCO was far from "commercial", fact was REAL DISCO never made it to the radio. But that was in the US, so over in Europe, I guess it was different. As for "Stupid", strange word from a DISCO fan!!?? RICK DEE'S made a "Stupid" Disco song, DISCO DUCK, but I never played it!! To this day I don't even own a copy!! Other then that, the other "Commercial" DISCO songs, I WILL SURVIVE, YMCA....., I wouldn't call stupid. Maybe The Ritchie Family's THE BEST DISCO IN TOWN could be called stupid, but others call it a CLASSIC. ---- As for that Bertolucci movie, I saw it. Good catch. It was a great scene too! Welcome home!! How are the VIENNA clubs these days?? Do you remember any of the OLD Vienna DISCOS?? Tell us about them, section in the Forum called INTERNATIONAL CLUBS, only has two clubs? Help us out a little-- PETE


Glad to see you back!!

in the 70s I was too small to go out but I dont think there were good dicos,
underground clubs more hippy rock orientated, the real discos were in fact commercial places with music like boney M - thats why its hard to find good 2nd hand disco records in vienna from that period
round 1980 the Nr 1 Club in Vienna was the U4 (punk and new wave) this club later also hosted the most famous gay night (heaven) with house music in vienna every thurday
in the middle of the 80s the first great clubbing in vienna was the "soul seduction" in the volksgarten, here dj culture started in vienna, all successful producers of the 90s like kruder & dorfmeister were regulars at this clubbing
I started going out round 88, the time acid house started, a big disco the P1 with quite good dance music opened at that time
in the early 90s the best clubbings were organized at the technical museum (I didnt go out at this period, because of heavy smoking and a hippy girlfriend) and later at the sofiensäle, a historical theatre
for underground the flex was Nr 1 with the best soundsystem ever in vienna
at the end of the 90s the meierei, also a historical jugendstil building in the very beautiful stadt park was a great place to party
now I dont go out very often except one week in ibiza in the summer
a good but very small house club is still the roxy

a regular dj "fritz da grove" from
http://www.deephousemafia.org/
is a friend of mine and he is a great disco lover too

nowadays a nice electro and house clubbing with disco flavour is http://www.movimiento.at/cms/

Staring Kristen Dunst, it is called "DICK", it is about Richard Nixon and the Watergate era. So you can imagine, plenty of great Disco sounds in the soundtrack.

I saw a movie last night on STARZ, called WE OWN THE NIGHT about cops and Russian mobsters in New York City. Takes place in 1980-81, in a DISCO called EL CARIBE, lots of great music, including a live appearance of COATI MUNDAI singing ME NO POP I... You No Olive Oil. Great stuff. Interesting movie, great car chase scene. Check it out. It stars Robert DuVall, Mark Walberg, Juaquin Phoinex. Sorry I butchered his last name. Lots of Rock-Disco, Blondie was all-over the place!

I just downloaded DVD-rip of 2008's french movie "Disco" (starring Gérard Depardieu and Emmanuelle Béart). Nice soundtrack and fun comedy!

There was a whole genre of European disco films made in the wake of SNF. These included the Italian Gloria Guida comedies like Infirmiera di Notte/Night Nurse which has a great cheesy disco score and a climax of sorts set in a club. Nadia Cassini had L'Insegnate Balla Con Tutta la Classe, The Teacher dances with the whole Class - more chintzy fashions, bad dancing, sleazy tunes and "funny" scetches involving bedhopping and rampant nudity. Ilona Staller herself aka La Cicciolina had 2 disco films out. John Travolto da un Insolito Destino had the same plot device than c 6 other Italian SNF ripoffs of the same 1978-79 period (like Disco King ): a goofy circle of friends decide to enter a dance contest. In Insolito.. they also decide to kidnap John Travolta who happens to be visiting Milan. Cue to hopeless attempts at comedy, horrendous dancing, wild overacting, visions of moustaches and deep cut dresses, great eurodisco music and overall cheesiness. Naturally films like this end up being far more ëntertaining than TGIF or SNF or any American mainstream feature. Germany produced quite a few disco movies, always with questionable sense of humour and loads of gratuitous nudity. Some films were softcore, some hardcore. The europorn subgenre is another matter still, let's not get into that though. More disco scenes arrived from Brazil and France. I especially like Je Te Tiens Tu Me Tiens La Barbichette, which had performances by The Ritchie Family and the Village People ( and bad comedy). Jean Musy composed glorious lush disco scores for several classy French films during the late 70's, with club scenes. India produced huge amounts of disco-related films, and Japan as well. 70's Hong Kong action films contained disco scenes. Not many are yet out on dvd but did surface back in the vhs days. All right, enough, this could turn into a book (not such a bad idea).

Check out the film "THE STUD" (1978) a UK film starring JOAN COLLINS, which was adapted from her sisters (JACKIE) novel. The movie is set in a London nightclub..the plot consists mainly of sex, drugs & music.

Cracking soundtrack! all the disco music from 1978...

Spawed a sequel called "THE BITCH" 1979 with another gteat sountrack from the same year.

I recommend that you dig these DVD's out, just for the music alone, plus it gives you an insight into what disco's were like in the late 70's in the UK.

Disco-on!

Soul-Boy, where is the soundtrack listing for The Stud (1978)? I searched for it on IMDB http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0078333/soundtrack
but there is only Emotion by Samantha Sang.

Valitrus,

I have for many years tried to track down both the soundtracks for the movies "THE STUD" & "THE BITCH" without any success. Had to settle for purchasing the DVD's instead.

Will keep searching and keep you posted if i ever locate them!
