Probably the best erotic film I have ever seen
6 April 2000 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I caught this film on a German satellite channel a few months ago. The locations and characters are sophisticated (no tattoos body piercing or lewd behaviour). There is a story line but the way in this is filmed is incredibly stunning and highly erotic. Corinne Clery a remarkably beautiful women, must be very pleased at the Playboy quality of the production. I rate this in the top 5 of any erotic film I have ever seen and recommend you to buy a copy if you can find one to keep. This is the benchmark against which all directors of this film genre should aspire to.
