Shame no one put this out on DVD :(
25 January 2004 | by (East Windsor, NJ USA) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this one as a beat up Prism VHS tape back in the 80's and I also remembered how good I thought the film was. I wouldn't say that it was the sexiest film ever made though it comes pretty darn close. The film would pre-date Adrian Lynne's 9 1/2 WEEKS by 12-13(?) years, interestingly enough. Both films deal with very similar subject matter: the sexual submission and domination of someone else. The difference here is that this film is way more perverse. One questions the likeability of these two characters but the one which garners the most sympathy has to be the woman whom just as France is destroyed by the invading Nazi forces, so is the woman's family and marriage. Although softcore, if explicit sexuality offends you, I wouldn't recommend seeing this. But if sexual cat and mouse games are your cup of Espresso, then I say go for it!

It really is a pity this hasn't found it's way to DVD, especially import DVD. Any flick with Franco Nero is a must-see.
