Excellent, 20 December 1999
Author: R B ( from Casper, Wyoming

This film is very excellent and shows a lot of culture. This film is a good example of the European Softcore movement which began during the mid and late 1960s and that continued to be in full swing. Josephine Jacqueline Jones is very marvelous in this film. She is sensual and erotic. Jones going from being a beauty contestant to starring in a very great soft core erotica film is a major leap and she does a great job in acting in this film. Karin Schubert has a very great role in the film that is very brief. I enjoy this film a lot. It is a film worth watching and seeing. The soft-core market in Europe made one of many classic and this film is one of them.
