better watched without those subtitles!, 17 January 2007
Author: christopher-underwood from United Kingdom

Previously viewed as a video without subtitles the film then seemed to make more sense than it does now with titles.

This is probably because they are so very badly done and the script so appalling. Nevertheless, this hippy, trippy, ever fleshy, arty farty French mish mash of sexploitation, Satanism and Last Year at Marienbad is entertaining enough.

Extraordinary looking people, lashings of whippings, untold folds of flesh and some fine vigorous naked dancing/writhing.

Crystal clear picture and possibly better watched without those subtitles!
