Missed Opportunity
19 August 2007 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Obviously made to cash in on "Women In Love" but lacking in the former's brooding atmosphere or rampant sensuality, The Virgin & The Gypsy promises much but fails to deliver.

The racy (for its time) title and the full-on nudity of its predecessor must have brought out the dirty mac brigade in droves when it was released. If so, they were to be sorely disappointed. Here we find Franco "Sex On Legs" Nero paired with an unremarkable lead actress of charisma-bypass proportions. No chemistry between them. None.

The editing seems to be remarkably clumsy and I've yet to see a print that has been remastered which all adds to the the impression of a moth-eaten also-ran. The pace is slow. The production values are cheap. It's just not very good.
