The Violation of Claudia (1977)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Bored housewife Claudia (Sharon Mitchell) grows tired of her husband not paying any attention to her. Her tennis instructor (Jamie Gillis) forces himself on her and then gets her into his prostitution ring where the woman gets to learn a few things about herself.

Bill Lustig will always be remembered for MANIAC but before directing that feature he was involved in the porn industry and made two films for the genre. This here was the first and while it's not a masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination, it's still a rather good movie that manages to capture a certain atmosphere that makes it worth watching. This is certainly a "porn chic" film as it tries to tell a serious story and not just be about hardcore sex. In fact, there's quite a bit of dialogue and character building before we even get to any sex.

Mitchell actually turns in a nice performance in the lead as does Gillis in his supporting role. The film features some good cinematography and an effective music score. Of course, most people are going to be coming for the sex scenes. There are a couple that are weirdly shot including the first encounter between Mitchell and Gillis but for the most part there are some erotic moments throughout. THE VIOLATION OF CLAUDIA isn't terrific but fans of Lustig will want to check it out.
