Escorting prostitute Milena (Raffaella Baracchi) impregnated by Sapo to an unnamed sea resort of grotesque, he encounters the ambitious young ringleader Molecola (François Negret) who has bought several old recreational sites in the environs to turn the town into an "Italian Las Vegas" but the hotel-bar named Snack Bar Budapest run by a man (Carlo Monni) and his family remains an obstacle. Molecola needs a lawyer to legitimize forceful evacuation of Snack Bar Budapest and the lawyer agrees. However, a murder he commits brings him at odds with Molecola. Written by lament

I saw this in Istanbul years ago
27 August 2002 | by (Roanoke, Va.) – See all my reviews

I must admit I remember the candid, tacky sex scenes about this more than anything else. I would hardly call it a good film, but certainly an intriguing one. I have to wonder how the other 13 voters saw this? I know it must be very hard to find in the USA. Worth a cheap thrill, if you have the time which I somehow did that afternoon in Turkey!
