Gemidos de Placer (1983)

** (out of 4)

Jess Franco directed this film about a man (Robert Foster) who invites a woman (Lina Romay) to live with him so that they can drive his wife crazy when she returns home from an asylum. Once again Franco bases a film on the work of Marquis de Sade but the end results aren't too good. I had to view the film in Spanish without any subs so perhaps a proper version will improve my thoughts but I found the story rather boring, the pacing off and the sex scenes were unerotic and came off laughable during some parts. I'm not sure what was up with Romay but she was quite skinny here, which normally wasn't the case in her 80's period.
