Sadoerotic Masterpiece
22 May 2004 | by (Columbus, Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Gemidos de Placer" is my favorite Jess Franco film, and the one that, in my opinion, is the best showcase for Franco's talents as a director. Franco makes the most of the obviously low budget. The scenery is beautifully filmed, and by scenery I speak of the beautiful surroundings of the villa where the film was shot (i.e., the ocean, mountains, etc.), the decor of the villa (the hanging beads, room dividers, and window shots), and of course the usually nude actors engaged in (usually) a threesome of passion and lust that is evil yet somehow life-affirming. Franco's long camera takes, some lasting ten minutes or more, are perfectly executed and demonstrate that he is not the clunky, zoom-lens-using maniac as is his reputation. The very attractive cast perform their roles well and the dialog sequences, what few there are, are so sincerely portrayed that the biting, inhuman dialog is alternately erotic and frightening. The torture death of the servant is violently erotically charged, and the lust-filled, three-way orgy that follows is akin to a literary masterpiece written in moans and writhing bodies. The Marquis de Sade would be very proud, and anyone should be proud to view this adults-only drama.
