Justine, Franco & D'Amato

Justine and the Whip (1975)

** (out of 4)

A real bastard of a movie with Jess Franco and Joe D'Amato sharing directing credit. In 1975 Franco started shooting a version of de Sade's Justine, which was to be a remake of his 1968 film. The production ran out of money with only a handful of scenes shot so the production company brought in D'Amato to edit together this footage with two other Franco films (Midnight Party and Shining Sex). The end result is a real mixed bag because it really doesn't work as a film but it does work as a "greatest hits" of various sex scenes with Lina Romay. Romay was certainly in her prime while these three films were shot so she's easy on the eyes and Franco, as usual, captures her sexual nature quite well making for some very erotic scenes. D'Amato added a music score from his Black Emanuelle films, which was a nice touch.
