A commentary on another's commentator opinion.
30 July 2005 | by (Venezuela) – See all my reviews

Just a few words on Anton Versluys'commentary on this film ("Underrated erotic extravaganza", 26 December 2000). I strongly disagree with his closing remarks, I quote: "This is not a serious film, just some kind of joke but good enough to call it a good film. Perhaps Roger Vadim will not be remembered as a great director, but this one is one of his fine works." First of all, Mr. Versluys flatly misses the point. Does he really expect to see a "serious" good, inspiring, stimulating, healthy EROTIC film during his lifetime? "Night Games" by the late Roger Vadim is a work of art, showing the skills and delicacy of this french artist; it is a film to be enjoyed and relished upon, unlike so many other so-called American "erotic" films, for example Demi Moore's "Striptease", which is truly nauseating. Yes, Roger Vadim will indeed be remembered as a fine Director having good taste, and Mr. Versluys will not be remembered as a great movie critic.
