Goofs

In announcing the invasion of Germany, it is stated that the German army has invaded Belgium and crossed the French border, occupying the city of Lille. In World War I the German troops crossing into France were advancing first towards the Somme river. It is only later, in their advance towards Dunkirk, that Lille was occupied. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Elena Martin: Paris, January 6th, 1940. Again, she wrote all night. She stretched, looked out at the rising sun, and bundled up against the early morning chill. As if drawn by some invisible force, she headed off across the awakening city.

Extremely Sexual Adaptation of Anais Nin's Book
25 May 2000 | by (Stockton, California) – See all my reviews

"Delta of Venus", director Zalman King's erotic adaptation of

praised writer Anais Nin's book, is a lush, sexy, dramatic film. It's 1940 Paris and young aspiring writer Elena Martin begins a hot affair with smut author Lawrence. One night Elena catches Lawrence in the arms of another and leaves him, then she supports herself as a nude model and begins writing erotica for a wealthy male patron. But she can't write about it until she experiences it first. I highly recommend both the book "Delta of Venus" and the movie version as well.

"Delta of Venus" is UNRATED for strong sexual sequences, graphic nudity, and for some language.

NOTE: "Delta of Venus" is available in a slightly cut R Rated version that omits one minute of sexual footage, and an UNRATED version that restores the cut minute.
