Miguel Ángel Aristu,
Eugenie is the capricious daughter of a rich diplomat, living in a seaside resort in Spain. She exhibits her young and splendid body in the beach and night-clubs. She feels an incredible adoration for her father who returns his daughter's passion. Franco impressively delivers themes of eroticism, violence, sadism and nihilism. Written by
Sad and poetic minimalistic S/M drama, remains one of Franco's best!
A really, really good early 1980s Franco title which remains one of his
most underestimated according to me. It's basically a remake on
Eugenie, the Story of a Young Girl's Journey into Perversion (a title
he would remake many times, even as a HC porno) but this is way better
than the original according to me. Great atmosphere, perverse,
voyeuristic and detached, and as with many of the better of his 1980s
films: much more focused than most of his 60/70s output. A benefit of
the ultra low budget I reckon. When you're making a movie with such a
ridiculously low budget as this, you have to really make the best use
of the elements you've got and you've got to keep it minimal. The cute
Katja Bienert is the perfect face for innocence-to-be-corrupted and
Antonio Mayans has one of his best roles as sadistic Alberto de Rosa.
Anyway, if you're at all interested in Franco, make sure to catch this
one, if only to see Lina Romay as a dog (!). I'd also like to add that
the sandfigures is one of the best images Franco has come up with yet!
I think Franco during his career has been the filmmakers who have
reached closest to the true spirit of De Sade in his work... unlike all
the other sleaze merchants and bozos that have consistently missed the
