Early Deodato sleaze gem
23 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An early lurid exploitation gem from the future director of Cannibal Holocaust. The parallel to Polanski's Knife in the Water is undeniable but Deodato (predictably) ups the sex quotient and also injects political tension via the interplay of Steiner's ruthless capitalist playboy persona and the socialist leanings of the mysterious beachcomber couple. In fact, the whole plot almost plays like a symbolic allegory of class struggle except for the recurrent need to inject nudity and sexual situations for ensuring box office. Out of the cast, Steiner really stands out and seems to revel in the out and out sleaziness of his character. His counterpart, Cliver, on the other hand seems mostly somnambulistic throughout. The female leads, Dionisio and Turner aren't shy and jump into their roles, including some lesbian scenes, with enthusiasm. The film's low budget and locations work together to create a unique charm. The soundtrack and wardrobes also contribute to the film's retro allure.
