Storyline

Marc, a young snake expert, works at a museum in Geneva. He loves snakes, to the point that he owns many and even takes a bath with his huge pet python. He meets and falls in love with a beautiful young woman named Malenka, who is the assistant--and mistress--of an older herpetologist professor. Marc discovers that not only is the "professor" a fraud but also a dangerous psychotic who had at one time seduced Marc's mother, and Marc believes that the longer Malenka stays with him, the greater danger she's in.

hot, hot , hot ...truly elevating!!! Don't miss!!!
19 March 2000 | by See all my reviews

what an insight into herpetology. Truly a new twist on one of the oldest professions. Performances by both actors and reptiles were superb. Answers for once and for all the eternal question, "Once a young man has met 'the snake,' will he turn his back on the woman he loves
