Storyline

In Zola's Paris, an ingenue arrives at a tony bordello: she's Nana, guileless, but quickly learning to use her erotic innocence to get what she wants. She's an actress for a soft-core filmmaker and soon is the most popular courtesan in Paris, parlaying this into a house, bought for her by a wealthy banker. She tosses him and takes up with her neighbor, a count of impeccable rectitude, and with the count's impressionable son. The count is soon fetching sticks like a dog and mortgaging his lands to satisfy her whims. She bankrupts him, arranges the debauching of his wife, and seduces his son on his wedding day. What else can she accomplish before she leaves Paris airborne? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Typical Golan, almost.
12 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

There was an interesting aspect of this film; Golan, Globus, and Dan Wolman made two versions of this film. One was a PG version that they hoped to sell to T.V. and the R-Rated one that was filled with nudity. 18 year-old Katya Berger bares a lot of skin in this costume drama about a young Parisien lady who finds work at a burlesque club and then takes advantage of the perverts who come here. The film takes place in the 1880's, yet one of the stars of the club has created movies. Not very exciting and very tame for today's standards. A turn-off in this film is the women who didn't shave under the arms. Ewww. Mandy Rice-Davies, who helped bring down the British Government years ago, appears in this film. Costume drama for completists or those who want to see a poor man's Brooke Shields.
