Another rare early Deodato
1 August 2008 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

I was lucky to see this second Gungala part in Russian, so I can say, that it is just one of those 60s jungle born woman series. Nothing special, but the jungles and trip atmosphere. I can see that in this 1968 effort horror master getting in to natural effects. The main actress is quite sympathetic and the whole adventures story is funny in some places, but this is not an original film, just a film. Still,those who like this exotic trip movies with the nice presence of peaceful eroticism. But it is the prototype of many early 80s jungle-based b movies . Good music .. Andrey Grachev "www.myspace.com/neizvest" If you are really interested in this sort of films. I can also recommend Umberto Lenzi before 1970.
