It begins with hippies and beatnicks dancing in a cheap 70's club. The
generic is SPOKEN, something you have to hear, especially with the
voice that speaks. Then we witness Brigitte Lahaie and her male friend
do the "seduction dance" and they pick up a bearded guy and a young
nymph. When they get out in the daylight - of course ! ever seen a
Franco film where people go to bars at night ?? - young and sexy
Brigitte steals the guy's car and her friend gets away with the young
Now the rest of the movie is just a pure delirium. The young girl is sold by Lahaie & friend to a whorehouse warden and taken away on a big sexual ship. I'll tell you no more about the story, but you have to know that this movie contains the most INCREDIBLE dialogues I have ever heard, some inventive and psychedelic camera works, and Lahaie at her best. If you usually like Franco's work, you'll fall in love with this one.
I have the strong displeasure of owning the softcore version of this colorful gem, but if you hear about the porn version, make sure to tell me about it...
Susan Hemingway hooks up with a guy at a discoteque (GREAT disco scene!), has unwilling sex (Brigitte Lahaie joins in on the action) and is drugged and sold off to a "deluxe bordello" where a bunch of dirty, moaning girls are kept in a constant state of excitement by some sort of sex-gas that is pumped into their living quarters. This is film has almost non-stop softcore sex but is still interesting for a francophile due to the dark subject matter and claustrophobic, sweaty atmosphere. There is no happy sex in this film, only rape, perversion, sadism and unfulfillment (as usual in Franco's world). Very low budget film, even by Franco's standard, Franco does the best to cover up the absence of a budget, a descent crew and good locations with some interesting/eccentric camera work and angles. I liked it, but it's almost impossible to discuss in terms of "good" and "bad" and I wouldn't recommend to anybody who haven't been bitten by the Franco bug.
Je Brule de Partout (1979)
* 1/2 (out of 4)
Wacked out Jess Franco film, which he shot in six days and it's obvious he didn't spend an hour on a script. A young woman (Susan Hemmingway) is kidnapped and forced to work in an orgy show but it turns out her daddy own the slave ring. It's clear this was a film Franco didn't have any money to make so he pretty much filmed anything and that anything is basically couples rolling around on the floor naked. Hemmingway is easy on the eyes as usual and Brigitte Lahaie, who went on to be Jean Rollin's lead actress, is also hot. Daniel White's brilliant jazz score keeps things going better than they should.
