Surprising similarities to The Last Seduction
24 May 1999 | by (Canterbury, England) – See all my reviews

The storyline of this semi-porno has surprisingly many similarities to The Last Seduction. The tone of the film is very different though, and the leading female character is much less in control here. Unsurprisingly, and rather sickeningly, Jean-Marie Pallardy wrote himself yet another good-guy role where he gets to hump the female lead.

Some of the sex scenes with Karin Schubert go pretty far, so that one may wonder whether this was perhaps made in two versions. Still, it is generally believed that she turned to hardcore porn only about 5 years later.

Fans of Brigitte Lahaie will be disappointed to hear that she is only given very little screen time in a minor role.
