Two sisters, Justine and Juliette, are as different as it's possible to be, but they both wind up working as prostitutes. The main difference between the two, however, is that Juliette enjoys every minute of it, romping with the rich and powerful in the lap of luxury, while Justine detests her position, lives in squalor and poverty and is dragged deeper and deeper into degradation and perversion.

More sexy fun and frolics abound in Mac Ahlberg's adaption of the Marquis de Sade's "Justine and Juliette". Jess Franco adapted the story for his 1968 film "Marquis de Sade's Justine" with Romina Power and the scene-stealing Mercedes McCambridge. Franco's version is more serious and more sadistic than Ahlberg's adaption, which is a then-modern-day account of the two sisters Justine and Juliette being tossed into the streets of 1975 Sweden, with Justine being the good girl who goes nowhere fast and Juliette almost instantly becoming a prostitute who becomes quite financially successful. Along the way the viewer is treated to beautifully lit, photographed and executed hardcore sex scenes and much intentional humor in the form of a bunch of over-the-hill old men chasing the pretty young women around again and again, and all without Viagra. Ahlberg's usual male actors having their eyes pop out of their heads at the sight of the beautiful women in the cast and going nutso thereafter is always fun to watch, and this is a common staple in Ahlberg's comedic adult films. The sex scenes between the major cast members, except for Harry Reems, are softcore, while nearly all of the hardcore action is among the unknowns. Nevertheless, these steamy scenes are very satisfying, as is the acting of the two female lead actresses, the ever-ready Maria Forsa and Anne Bie Warburg, both of whom look more beautiful than ever here. Harry Reems, as he did in Ahlberg's "Bel Ami", displays a real talent for comedy. The film slows down a little from time to time, but most of the time there is much fun to be had.
It is not very often that adult films can be classified as refreshing and life-affirming, but "Justine and Juliette", as well as most of Ahlberg's other adult films, falls distinctly into those categories, and adult viewers with a sense of humor and an appreciation for Ahlberg's eye for comedic detail will not be disappointed.
