A Sexual Oddyssey
2 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

Two women who have been lifelong friends take a few days off to bond while wandering around the French countryside. The whole film is little more than the two relating events to each other, mostly told in flashbacks. As such, it is not particularly engaging. To make up for the shortcomings of the script, the director comes up with excuses for each actress to strip every once in a while - not that there's anything wrong with that, especially when one of the bodies belongs to lovely Sanda. This being a French film, most of the exploits related by the women are sexual, including a truly bizarre one involving Sanda and her grandmother!
