An exchange of dialogue that begins with "Don't you ever feel attracted to the girls you photograph?" was sampled and used in a song, "Potato Junkie," on the Irish metal band Therapy?'s 1992 album "Pleasure Death." The dialogue has often been erroneously attributed to other movies such as Pretty Baby (1978) and Blow Up (1966). See more »
Agreed, the acting in this film is truly awful. But there's enough nudity and some lovely images (I particularly enjoyed the early scene where there is paint smeared over naked bodies during a weird photo shoot) to hold the interest. And, as a former resident of Adelaide, I was pleased to see a film which used the famous Maslin Beach (first legal nude beach in Aus) as a location.
The tone is surreal throughout, and the awful acting and weak story seem only to add to that effect. Worth a look, especially if you can lay your hands on the video version which includes a "the making of" special, which includes some extra nude scenes.
