Unlike the previous reviewer I approached this movie as a fan of the exploitation genre. Given the date of production and the extensive nudity including close-up between the legs shots this movie definitely fits. Given this, the background of a good plot with an important historical context, and we have a very nice exploitation film. Nina Finkelstein is reported to be 16, played a 15 year old, at the time of filming, and while this is common in Europe it is still unusual today to see such extensive underage nudity in a film in the USA. It makes one think how in the US we have not come very far in our acceptance of art of this nature in the past 80+ years from the time of this story. Overall I give it an 8, and I would give it more if it was faster paced or Jane Birkin was more than a 32A.
