moody eroticism
16 November 2003 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

This early low-budget entry from Benazeraf introduces the main themes of his later cult films like "La nuit la plus longue" (aka "Sexus"). There are a lot of impossibly pretty/moody characters, male and female, involved in hip, existential chatter, and intentionally meaningless dances of seduction and betrayal, emphasised by striking long shots and peek-a-boo camera angles. The main raison d'etre of this one is to show off the magnificent body of Sylvia Sorrente, which it does to great effect in teasing states of semi-undress and wetness. This is a very minor film, but it reflects the zeitgeist of the early 60's before outright nudity, panting and grappling took charge. And the women's casual cabana-wear definitely presages the low-rise, navel-flaunting fashions of 40 years later.
