Storyline

Olivier, a handsome but callow and moody young student, picks up an enthusiastic actress during a theatre rehearsal, and is introduced to her acquaintances -- a group of jaded rich kids who spend their time storming around the Riviera harassing passersby, throwing wild parties and following all the latest trends. When sexy Elke gives him the eye, he leaves the actress in the lurch and joins the gang for a decadent party aboard a yacht. However, Elke's wanton ways and Olivier's inexperience do not mesh, and in a snit, he accidentally sets the yacht afire. The gang wreaks its vengeance by luring him into a dangerous contest of bravura on a construction site. Written by GoblinHairedGuy

this is a guilty pleasure in the true sense of the term
14 June 2005 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Before cinematic vixen Elke Sommer made her big break in "A Shot in the Dark", she starred in several European exploitation flicks, including "Douce violence" (called "Sweet Ecstasy" in the United States). The plot centers on a young man getting lured into a group of good-bad people, of which Elke Sommer's character is a member. Naturally, she proceeds to seduce him. But, it does not end on a good note.

Of course, the actual plot takes a back seat to Elke Sommer's voluptuous figure. The whole movie could just be several shots of her body, and it wouldn't be much different. If you ask me, over the years, Elke Sommer hasn't gotten the credit that she deserves. Meow, meow...
