Collectible Title from the Greek Erotic FIlms of the 70s
I watched this film recently on TV and recalled the times when we rushed after high school to watch erotic flicks like that one. Mostly cut during the "Junta" times, but nevertheless played in many local theaters, where the show began on 14:00 hours, till 2:00 am after midnight. The plot? usually around some creeps that steal and kill around, in the mid time forcing some pretty girls in bed. Violence is predictable as real gangsters don't do these things, and sex is entertaining. "Oi Erotomaneis" meaning "The Sexmaniacs" in Greek, is no exception. The only reason to watch a film like this is to remember the school years, recall your city as it was then, and feel the nostalgia of the passed years that can never return. Some of the actors here are very known to all Greeks of my age. Lefteris Gyftopoulos is recognized as the "leading gangster and sex maniac" of the time, Anestis Vlachos used to play the "Hit Man", George Christodoulou very young here, later to become a hard-face gangster, and Udo Kier who made 2 films in Greece during the 70s, coming from a rich career in Italy (actually I think he's Austrian) -this is his 2nd movie, the first being "Proklisis" (Provocation). To have an idea what Greek gangsters of the time were, Gyftopoulos (the head of the gang) is heard to say on the phone (talking to one of his men): "Why are you wasting your time? Kill them both and return immediately!"
The actresses? Well, the beautiful and aristocratic (although old enough here) Betty Arvanity (the scene where she's raped in the beach by a gangster is cut), Eleni Anoussaki (a Mediterranean beauty who is singing a song here, now is a retired politician) and the young beauty Rena Kosmidou who was the sex symbol of many similar flicks of the 70s. Perry Poravou and Nicky Tsigalou are also pretty (and juicy) but do not show much here. Conclusion: watch the movie to learn how we spent our free time during high in Athens! (6 out of 10)
