Talentless in all departments

Author: Stefan Kahrs from Canterbury, England
17 September 1999

There have been several films with the title 'Devil in the flesh' over the years (half a dozen at least), typically all of related genres which makes them easy to confuse; atomic-12's comments are about a 1998 film, not this one. The best known (and best) of the lot is probably Marco Bellocchio's from 1986.

This film here is a very-low-budget exploiter about a group of guerillas/bandits taking over a remote hospital, apparently somewhere in Latin America. They have one of their group medically cared for and take the opportunity to have sex with the all-female staff. Overall this is a lousy effort: the script is very poor, the characters lack conviction, the photography is dull, the actors lack screen presence, both the rumpy-pumpy and the (mild) violence are unimaginative. Talentless in all departments.

Excellent in all departments

To write about movies you have to have benchmark or basic point which is always one--movies are illusion. If they reflect on reality it cannot be proved as everybody has different opinion about past and present. With this in mind this flick is excellent and I don't care about plot which is reasonable in this case, female characters which are all hot in their designer's underwear, fair amount of sexual activities etc. Illusion?--yes. Do I care?--no. Why?--D'Amato fits my definition of excellent. Maybe I am wrong?--maybe. But I pay attention to which movies I remember and which dissipate without trace. And I remember how piece of propaganda called Battleship Potemkin was considered one of 10 best movies of all time and as I knew all this propaganda first hand I said--whatever but D'Amato is on my list.
