Storyline

Michel and Paul earn money from passers-by by doing chalk drawings outside the Louvre. They also make the scene at the hot spots of Paris. Sand is a wealthy and luscious blonde lesbian artist who paints nude girls and houses an entourage of chic chicks at her loft. When Michel's gorgeous sister shows up from out of town, both Paul and Sand fall for her. During a wild Roman costume party, she is abandoned by the disgusted Paul, and poses nude for Sand. An outraged Michel bursts in on them and confronts Sand, but some unexpected emotions between them begin to stir. Will Sand forsake her decadent lifestyle for the arrogant Michel?

decadent time capsule
16 December 2003 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

This now-campy soufflé is an indispensable time capsule of the decadent 60s, and is a lot more erotic than the harder X material that it helped open the door for. José Benazeraf, before he decided to take artistic control of his material, served as producer, and his idiosyncratic touch is ubiquitous -- gorgeous jaded players, elliptic dialog, arty milieux, jazzy (now retro) music, and bizarre striptease acts (including one at the legendary Crazy Horse Saloon), all with sensuously tactile b&w photography. Radley Metger released it in the States, and apparently added or altered some footage -- the Roman orgy party scene does bear a striking resemblance to the prison party in Camille 2000. If you can deal with the now politically incorrect view of alternative sexuality (which was de rigueur in the cinema of the era), this is a superb treat for the eyes and ears, accompanied by a martini or two.
