Sinner (1972)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

A young virginal girl runs away from home but gets raped, which turns her into a nymphomaniac but she sees revenge when she runs back into the rapist. This is a very interesting film from director Jess Franco that plays out a lot more serious than one might expect. The reasons to why the young girl turns to sex is an interesting one and one that isn't normal for any type of film. I think the screenplay really lets the film down because it tries to handle the material at a mature and smart level but there aren't too many brains here. The performances are all rather good however. Howard Vernon has a small role.
