Trivia

According to an interview in the Italian publication "Io Emanuelle," director Hall Bartlett insisted that actress Laura Gemser use a pseudonym because of her background in erotic films. She reluctantly accepted the name "Moira Chen." Such was the insecurity about the reputation of the film that Bartlett apparently forbade the cast and crew from calling Gemser "Laura," so she was dubbed "Rosalie." See more »

Great Plot but Really Lousy Filming Job
17 July 2005 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This film has a really interesting plot. The acting is pretty good as well. It is a real life story about the height of integrity of a journalist in Laos, and the extent to which he will go for his girlfriend. It is a very uplifting story.

However, the DVD versions of the film (I have seen two DVD versions) are extremely poor. The sound is so terrible, that frequently the listener cannot tell what is being said, and there are no subtitles or closed captioning. There is a constant roaring sound in the background of the soundtrack for the entire film that makes the voices often difficult to understand.

The film has really bad resolution and it is often dark. The lighting and resolution are frequently so poor that one cannot recognize which characters are in the scene.

The producers of the DVDs frequently bill the film as starring Priscilla Presley. If you are a Priscilla Presley fan, don't be fooled by this as she appears on the screen for a total of perhaps 2 minutes and has about three lines. She plays a very minor role in the film. It is strange that the real heroine in this film, Laura Gemser, usually gets much less billing.

The film can usually be purchased for less than $5, which to me is worth it. But be aware that the sound and video quality are EXTREMELY poor. So I give the plot a 9 and the filming a 1 for an average of 5/10.
