A triangle of friendship, love, sex, and, perhaps, murder. Minou is newly married to Peter, a businessman in debt as he works to bring a new product to market. They met through Dominique, sexually voracious, Minou's best friend, and Peter's former (and possibly still) lover. A stranger accosts Minou one night on the beach while Peter is away. He tells her that Peter has murdered a business associate and blackmails her into sleeping with him. He compounds the blackmail with photos taken of their tryst. To Minou's surprise, this same stranger is in a pornographic photo Dominique has imported from Denmark. Is this all a game, and if so, who's behind it? Written by
Entertaining giallo that keeps you involved to the very end.
'Forbidden Photos Of A Lady Of A Lady Above Suspicion' is an above average giallo that fans of the genre should seek out. The beautiful Dagmar Lassander (Fulci's so-so 'House By The Cemetary') plays a woman who is attacked by a stranger who almost rapes her then retreats telling her that her husband is a cheat and a murderer. She is devoted to her husband, a businessman who unbeknown to her is having an affair with her best friend, the cynical Dominique (Susan Scott). The mysterious stranger continues to haunt her and plants doubts in her mind about her husband. A business associate of his died under unusual circumstances and she becomes convinced that he was involved in his death. Her would be rapist becomes a blackmailer threatening to unmask her husband unless she allows him to take pornographic photos of her. Still loving her husband she is forced to comply. This is just the beginning of this entertaining thriller which has several surprises in store. While nowhere near the best giallo I have watched it is still to be recommended. I was entertained, and the story had me involved up to the very end.
