Among the better films of its kind
7 August 2000 | by (Houston) – See all my reviews

I like 1970's European soft-core movies so much more than what passes for that genre today. They made real movies (with a lot of nudity) which had actual plots (even if those plots were designed to lead to the nudity). Today's films are, or seem to be, just heavily edited hard-core porno films. Back then, they would photograph real live women, rather than today's cement-like mounds of silicone. Okay, about "Vanessa". The star, Olivia Pascal, was very beautiful, exuding an innocent charm that really helps a sex movie. She could have benefitted, I thought, though, from a quick armpit shave. She wasn't terribly furry there, though, so that wasn't too jarring. The film had a lot of good shots of Hong Kong. Here's the scorecard: 16 breasts, 6 butts, and 6 pubic hair shots. However, I saw the version cut down by about 15 minutes for American cable TV. (I taped this movie about 10 years ago.) I'd really like to know what all was cut. Overall, among the better films of its kind.
