As I turned on the movie, I didnt expect anything more than a weakly pieced together story with blatant excuses to throw sex and nudity into a no brained story. Ironically enough, the movie started out on that foot. During the first 10-15 minutes you are just thrown into a story that doesnt seem that it will have any promise or realism...and then it slowly hooks you.
Bruno Fontanna (who wrote and directed this movie) cleverly chisels out realistic characters put into engrossing situations. You never know what their motivations are or what they have in mind until the moment comes through. The acting shows strength and the story itself keeps changing perspective, keeping you off balanced and wondering where the next turn will lead.
Another thing I admired was the directing. The movie looks to have been originally shot on maybe 16mm film and gives you the impression of being a voyeur looking in on the intimate lives and thoughts of the characters.
When I turned on the movie, I was laying down comfortably, almost asleep. By the time the movie came to an end, I was literally on the edge of my seat. In my opinion, this was a great film considering a low budget and basically a no name acting crew. Besides the gorgeous Laura Gemser who no one has really ever taken as a serious actress anyways.
Not alot of nudity (if thats what you are looking for), but smart film making worth checking out - if you can find a copy of this Out Of Print title. 10/10
