Father Ambrose is a young unscrupulous priest from her local parish whom decides to take advantage of Belle's naiveness to seduce her and teams up with Belle's uncle to exploit Belle's newly aroused sexuality.

Essential if not particularly titivating with some effective humour too
11 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Bright, colourful, well dressed costume drama of the pornographic kind and not a little corrupt! The emphasis here is on the storyline and costumerie but down and dirty sex certainly raises it's head and the pace gathers considerably towards the end. Being based upon an English tale this has decidedly English preoccupations to the fore, including monied men having their way with young girls, even their own daughters, an emphasis upon virginity and the inevitable intrusion of men of the church. Not particularly sexy but a steady gallop through various set-ups always ensures that attention does not flag. The girls look lovely, including of course Annette Haven, in a minor role and we see the infamous John Holmes once again trying to prove (Barbara Windsor style) that he really is that big. An extraordinary semi consensual scene outside in the countryside where ragged yokel father and son help each other get it on with the pretty heroine. Essential if not particularly titivating with some effective humour too.
