In Amsterdam, the violinist Emilia (José Way) is married with Charles
(Coen van Vrijberghe de Coningh) and they have a little daughter, Anna
(Lydia van Nergena). Emilia is trying to sell the house that belonged
to her deceased mother. One day, she is alone in the house changing
clothes and out of the blue the client Leon (Huub Stapel) comes into
the room using the key provided by the real estate agent. Leon starts a
seducing game with Emilia and they have a kinky love affair, affecting
her relationship with Charles and Anna.
"De onfatsoenlijke vrouw", a.k.a. "The Indecent Woman", is an erotic romance with a simple story of infidelity. The film works very well, keeping an erotic atmosphere and sexual tension, mainly because of the sexy unknown actress with the exotic name José Way. She has beautiful body and face and her performance gives credibility to her character Emilia. Unfortunately there is no information about this actress in Internet. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "Mulher Indecente" ("Indecent Woman")
_The Indecent Woman_ draws out several themes, among them the tension
between the desire to loosen restraints and the fear of losing control.
Emilia, the central character, muses at one point that "fantasies are so
contradictory", which captures the mood of the film perfectly. The
potential for an individual to lose him or herself in desire is a key
as the story unwinds.
There are several much more explicit scenes, but keep an eye out for the "shadow foreplay" sequence, which is perhaps the most tense and erotic sequence in the film. Later, the shadows resurface, this time as a threat, mirroring the progressive change in the relationship between Emilia and Leon.
Nothing new here.
A (seemingly) happily-married woman has an affair. What was meant to be a brief fling turns into something quite addictive, kinky...and dangerous...
The movie doesn't cover any new ground. The setup, meeting, affair and consequences are all straight out of the infidelity-drama handbook. There is a brief moment toward the end where it appears that the plot may develop into something more sinister and intriguing but that idea fizzles out pretty quickly.
Ultimately the movie goes nowhere.
Performances are okay though.
