Storyline

Quando arriva la notizia che i resti dell'aereo su cui viaggiava il figlio con la moglie e la figlioletta sono stati ritrovati in Kenya, Sir Donovan organizza subito una spedizione nel tentativo di ritrovare la nipote di cui non sono stati trovati i resti. Glen Shipper è a capo di questa spedizione dietro ricompensa di 100.000 dollari e in un villaggio viene a sapere che una donna bianca chiamata Tarzana (donna misteriosa in lingua bantù - sic) vive in una zona pericolosa controllata dai ribelli. Subito si parte per quella zona. Ma della spedizione fa parte qualcuno a cui non dispiacerebbe che la nipote ed erede di Sir Donovan scomparisse per sempre... Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

Good Euro 'Female Tarzan' Movie
17 July 2001 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

Of course, the main attraction is the topless Femi Benussi as the title heroine. Beyond that, it is a very simple but OK jungle adventure. The production values are adequate, you get to see Tarzana herself riding real elephants, kissing real lions, not just insert stock footage. It should also be noted that the 'African native' music accompanying the dances are really great, not the cheesy, stereotyped, crude "savages' music" (!) you might expect to get.
