Back in 1970, when the MPAA came with the rating system, people could now make those R-Rated films like crazy and one of the hotbeds for the pre-hardcore sex comedies/dramas was Quebec. From 1970 to the mid 80's, they made dozens of these nudies. One of the first was this one. I saw it on T.V. in the late '80s; the last time it aired on T.V. was June 29, 1991, and I never saw it again until Nov 24, 2000 when someone aired it again. This film is near impossible to rent but I'm sure there's a place in Quebec that would have it.
The story is about two housewives who are bored with their lives and decide to deal with it by having sex with any man who comes into the house. Whether he's the milkman, the phone repairman, the mailman, the pizza delivery guy, the carpet cleaner, even a guy who shovels the driveway, all are targets. Meanwhile, we also see the lives of their husbands. One is serious about getting a better job in Toronto, the other is a playboy who has a mistress and later in the film has sex with the other guy's wife. Later in the film, one of their targets dies after their lovemaking and they have to defend themselves for it.
The ladies in the film are very nice. In fact the two unscrupulous housewives, played by Monique Mercure and Louise Turcot, remind me of two ladies I spend a lot of time with. Even the guys have to let it hang out, which is something you don't see in today's soft-core films except for the gluteous shot. Yes, the film's editing isn't the best since it's low-budget. The film can only be found in French. Finally, it's weird to see natural beauties instead of the man-made babes we have to see today. But, this is one of the best examples of what the early nudie industry was and only Russ Meyer was better at it. Bonus: You'll see the Grey Cup game where it was "Rough Riders vs. Roughriders" from 1969, where my city won the CFL Championship and you'll see the only hip Prime Minister Canada ever had, the recently deceased Pierre Elliot Trudeau (1918-2000). Still a very entertaining film, done during a very bad winter; wait until you see how much snow they get in this city.
In 2006, the studio dubbed this film into English under the title Two Women In Gold. The English version, however, is inferior. A number of scenes were deleted (including visible footage of Prime Minister Trudeau) and for some strange reason the English in the original film was dubbed! One of the deleted scenes was the really funny one where Bob gets sprayed with snow from Yvon T.'s snowblower. The dubbed version does allow English speakers to understand what they were saying in French but that's about it. Make sure you find the original French version as it's way superior.
