According to director Just Jaeckin the final temple location of the film was actually shot on one stage with "roll-away" walls that were dressed and rearranged before each scene to give the appearance of many different rooms. See more »
During the fight scene on the river between Willard's boat and the Chinamen's Junk, one of the subtitles shows a character's line and then follows it with the word "Bible?" which has no relevance to anything on the screen and seems to refer back to a line at the start of the film. See more »
A fantastic movie! Not only sexy but mostly what french people call erotique. Many themes, the FORCE (volcano) the virgin killer (you'll die if you make love to her) (Gwendoline) and her world are very near of a light SM butthis is mostly the Goddess side of the female that shines. Its definitely one of the best french movies but not so recognized.. who cares? The music is excellent, based on a vocal progression with some ostinato technique. And last but not least Zabu appears, sh'e very young and we see that she kept going amazingly well! What a pity that after that we did not see Tawny Kitaen in movies of the same standard! Aline (who lives like a modern Gwendoline)
