I'm a photographer myself so I get interested in films about photographers. In this case, you have a photographer who burned out after one book. Apparently it was a dang lucrative book, since he can afford a great loft and a beautiful agent as well as spend all his time photographing a crack in his studio wall. Meanwhile his younger brother is using the mystique of being a photographer as an excuse to get women naked and hopefully in bed. Throw in the beautiful Michele Scarabelli as the long-suffering agent, trying to get the older brother out of his slump and back to creativity.
Then there is Ziggy, the artist from downstairs, who spends the entire film trying to pry his model out of the plaster cast she's stuck in. By the way, near as I can tell, the actress playing the model only made this one movie. Too bad 'cause she was a real trooper, spending her entire on-screen time stuck in that plaster mass. Skin flicks (of which this is one) share a basic form with musicals-- the plot is periodically punctuated by scenes specific to that genre. In this case, the aforementioned nude scenes. Fans of Michele Scarabelli will want to seek this one out, since her extended nude scene makes for the climax of the film.
