Trivia

The original title is Amantide - Scirocco. The word "amant" means "lover" in French. The suffix "-ide" is added to words to form names of chemical components like oxygen and oxide. Scirocco is a type of hot wind, often dusty or rainy, blowing from North Africa across the Mediterranean Sea to southern Europe. So the literal translation of the title is approximately - The Lover Chemical - Hot Desert Wind. See more »

not the most meaningful, but very entertaining!
14 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i remember seeing this movie almost 20 years ago!!

it was a soft core porn import playing in a seedy local theater. besides obvious appeal, it was quite entertaining. story flows smoothly (although it's not a very complicated or meaningful story). the performance of main actress was quite charming.. esp the scene where she combines the pleasure of sex with pleasure of horseback riding. that alone is worth watching the movie!!

i don't remember much else about the movie. the nature shots are very nice, nobody's overacting. most of the characters are not fully developed, but then the movie is only about the main actress, so it's expected.. :)

don't recall if musical score was nice.. that's about it!
