sensuality at best
19 May 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I have watched this movie in late 80s in a theater where majority of crowd came for action and they all were treated with plenty in this one.

If talking of erotica, this will definitely stand up higher in ranks. Aldo Rado at his best and Fiona Gelin not only looked sensual but she managed to create lot of on screen heat and the horseback sex scene was one of the best I have ever seen in an erotica. There is also a scene in a crowded bus where our sexy heroine is being felt up by many men and I think this scene was later ditto copied by Tinto Brass in one of his movie.

The plot is okay but the locations are great. So if you are looking for some hot action this is where you should go. 8 out of 10
