beautifully shot, 6 August 2009
Author: movieman_kev from United States

Olivia Pascal ,in her first movie role, stars as Vanessa, a Innocent doe-eyed Catholic schoolgirl who travels to Hong Kong to collect an inheritance from her deceased Uncle, but soon (while she's taking a bath, so we witness her in her full puffy-nippled glory) learns said inheritance includes a string of bordellos as well as a plantation. OK, grated the plot-line is a bit on the daft side and absolutely nothing to write home about, but thankfully this film is beautifully shot and has some true beauties in it, so I can absolutely overlook the silly lack of competent plot. As far as soft-core '70's films go I'd still ran this up there.

Eye Candy: Eve Garden, Olivia Pascal, Uschi Zech and a few extras all get fully nude Severin

My Grade: C+

DVD Extras: Interview with Director Hubert Frank and director of photography Franz Lenderle; a 16 minute silent (save for the accompanying music), nudity-filled behind the scenes featurette; & a theatrical trailer for this film
