Sensational B.B.B (*) exploitation!
6 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

* B.B.B. stands for Babes Behind Bars. Even though they all sound and look fascinating, these B.B.B. (or W.I.P = women in prison) movies usually are the most boring and incompetent exploitation moneymakers of all. All those movies directed by Jess Franco (Barbed Wired Dolls), Oswaldo De Oliveira (Amazon Jail) and God knows who else look promising enough but they ultimately fail in accomplishing anything at all, apart from showing tons of pointless and often even very unattractive naked female flesh. Michele Massimo Tarantini's – great name – "Women in Fury" is different from every possibly viewpoint and actually a surprisingly good film. It has a great story to tell, the acting performances are adequate for a change and even though the amounts of sex and nudity are plentiful, it always remains stylishly shot and within the boundaries of good taste. No endless sequences in which the camera zooms in on women masturbating or getting barbarically whipped for no reason other than sick sexual pleasure. Instead the script patiently takes the time to introduce the main characters and make the audience empathize with them. It involves nudity, of course, but it serves a purpose and at least the actresses here are highly desirable. The pivot figure is Angela Duvall, a silent girl doing prison time for a murder that was really committed by her cowardly brother. Very much against her own will, Angela causes amok within the prison's walls because everybody – guards as well as fellow inmates – want a taste of her beautiful body. The penitential doctor falls madly in love with Angela too and even convinces the authorities to release her, but in the meantime she and a handful of other girls already escaped into the Brazilian jungle where new types of terror await her. "Women in Fury" is an extremely violent film, with quite a lot of nasty massacres occurring every couple of minutes and legitimate tension nailing you on the edge of your seat. Suzane Carvalho is a beauty with talent and brains, and you're guaranteed to cheer for her. As far as I'm concerned, it's the best B.B.B. movie available on the market.
