I had the opportunity to read John Cleland's book last week, and I could not put it down. What a fantastic book, my imagination ran absolutely wild, and when I found out that a movie had been made, through IMDb, off I went in search of a DVD. Just finished watching it. I was not disappointed at all. I just cannot believe that it was made over twenty years ago.
What's so good? So much of what I saw in the movie, was what I imagined when reading the book. OK, so Lisa Foster looks older than what Fanny is supposed to be in the book, but apart from this, I did not imagine Fanny to be much different. She is a very good and beautiful actress, with or without her clothes on, and I felt she acted according to the requirements of the part, which called for a sense of naughty innocence. A lot of the sets, the scenery, the costume, were what I imagined them to be. OK, you have to put up with the silliness of the established actors like Oliver Reed, Shelley Winter and Wilfrid Hyde-White. These guys were good, don't get me wrong, but the real star is Lisa Foster, no doubt about this, she clearly carried the movie very well. I am just surprised that she has not appeared in more movies.
I am not sure how to categorize this movie. With the amount of nudity involved, it should probably be classed as an erotic movie, but the nudity is always so tastefully done, without a hint of pornography, and there is no unnecessary nudity.
I am impressed with what I have seen. A good and extremely sexy actress, good acting, good sets and photography, good plot, good fun. It is erotic, but not pornographic, I watched it with my wife, she actually got the video! And she too enjoyed it.
