Part documentary, part mockumentary, part sexploitation, all Jess Franco. Well sort of. Tucked in between stock footage is a quasi-documentary about the loss of sexual innocence. Starting in the Garden of Eden we are taken on a voyage around the world that covers various rites of passage and cultures deflowering of the virgin. The film sits precariously in a mixture of genres, but sits comfortly in the mondo genre best. Told in a series of vignettes you see everything ranging from native stock footage inserts to footage shot to titillate the masses. Very tongue in cheek, I wouldn't call this a serious study but I'll give Jess credit for trying to pass it off as one. Good or bad is irrelevant when talking about a Franco film. Franco mixes the good, the bad, the beautiful and the ugly usually in the same film. This one appears to be rather obscure and its' occasional funny moment will most likely appeal to Francophiles everywhere.
