Meet Poor old Mr Robinson who is so bored at home with his terrible and an annoying house wife and her Mother. At work One day, he decides to retire from urban life and spend the rest of his time with three very nice girls on an island. But beware! there's awful cannibals. Written by
Druggist Robinson Smith (Yejuda Barkan) is pretty much bored his with job, tired of his mother-in-law and also can't stand his wife not getting him any so he imagines a beautiful island with beautiful women who will give him what he wants. The only problem is that once he's really on this island with beautiful women, he never expected to run into wild savages. As with many of director Jess Franco's works, I had to view this without the benefit of subtitles so as much as I did enjoy the film, I probably would have enjoyed it twice as much had I been able to follow everything going on. This is obviously your typical sex comedy that you'd expect to see during this part of the decade and Robinson Crusoe is the target. I was really shocked to see how funny and well-made this picture was and it just goes to show you that Franco was more than capable of doing more than just porn or sleazy trash. For starters, the film actually looks extremely professional and this includes some very good cinematography and even the editing was a lot more impressive than what we normally see. The comic timing by the director is probably the best I've seen from him. Most people point to CELESTINE AN ALL AROUND MAID as his best comedy but I found this one to be so much better. The performance by Barkan was extremely good and his laid-back nature really helped sell the film. His comic timing was also terrific and just look at a scene where he's trying to mess around with the wife in bed and she has face cream on. The supporting cast includes some very beautiful women as well as Franco regulars like Paul Muller and Howard Vernon. At just 80-minutes the film does start to lose some of its steam towards the end but there's no question that fans of the director's work will want to check this one out.
