Loosely based on the novel (actually the only thing the same is the words spoken at the beginning) this short film is boring, poorly acted, and, given the possibilities of the source material, resolutely unsexy.
Black and white and with minimal dialogue, there are a couple of scenes which work - the shoe shop, the eponymous lady in fur wraps, the orgy sequence - but they are unbalanced by the voyeuristic bathing sequence where a large breasted and large bottomed blonde is soaped by a dominatrix with a beehive, and interminable shots of the hero of the film wandering aimlessly about a large house where titillating scenes are presented which really go nowhere.
I couldn't really find any merit in this. As exploitation it is too dull, the one hour feels like ten, and the dreamlike atmosphere just doesn't work.
