Moody, serious time-piece - and quite a "nudie" for its time
28 February 2000 | by See all my reviews

This is a rarely seen, moody, melancholy and seriously done time-piece of early sixties' Gay Pur-ee starring wonderful early girlie icon NICO of latter VELVET UNDERGROUND fame. Good b/w cinematography also shows a surprisingly lot of Nico's (and the other strippers) body -for early sixties' standards. If you're a Nico addict, this etherial mélo is a must-see. Watch out for famous chansonniere Juliette Gréco.
