boring!
31 October 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is what happens when a film maker has money but no style. Laura Gemser is naked but she's a method actress and looks like she's in need of serious nourishment beyond raw fish and coconuts. Dead skinny, not sexy. Arthur Kennedy provides some acting backbone but ends up playing himself. The scenery is pretty but is prettier elsewhere, including The Blue Lagoon, whose stars are better fed; and Call Me Savage, whose stars are better looking. As far as erotic beach movies are concerned you're better off renting Our Girl Friday with Joan Collins. This director also made Trinity is Still My Name, one of the best spaghetti westerns. Both movies are aimed at, and will score well with 12-year-olds. This is not a derogation, just a statement of fact.
