It was filmed in 1969 for the German market, like Venus in Furs (1969). In 1973 it was released in Italy for the first time and immediately confiscated by the authorities. In 1975 it was released again in Italy after all the sex scenes were cut and replaced with plotless judicial scenes. See more »
This potentially interesting film falls flat mainly due to a VERY leisurely pace that sucks the life out of the movie. Instead, we are left with a somewhat kinky, rarely entertaining movie that probably could have been much better with a few adjustments. This film may prove to be of some interest to those who have seen other films named "Venus In Furs", and it is a pleasant distraction for fans of the gorgeous Laura Antonelli, but it would prove to be of little interest to anyone else.
