History Gets Mangled Even Further
17 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

There've been many (oh so many) adult films that parodied mainstream films, but this is probably the most unlikely example of the sub-genre. Inspired, apparently, by the 1997 French film of the same title, it tells a romanticized (and in this case eroticized) version of the early life of Artemisia Gentileschi, portrayed by Raylene (real name Stacy Bernstein) and her romance with Agostino Tassi (in this version, Bobby Vitale.)

There's just one little problem with both films. Artemisia didn't have a romance with Tassi. She was raped by him. In both the original and in this adult remake, this rape is presented as a loving relationship that is portrayed as a rape to save face. Of course, the adult film goes further than that, portraying Artemisia as, in fact, the promiscuous girl that Tassi attempted to paint her (sorry) in his trial. (She gives a blowjob to an artist's model, portrayed by Julian, and has a lesbian interlude with her maid, the lovely Blair Segal. While in the former she could be argued to be saving her virginity for her future husband, the vigorous use of a dildo in the latter puts paid to that notion ...)

While I'm dismayed by the film's plagiarism of its source material and its disrespect for history, I have to admit that its erotic sequences are very hot. In particular there's an extended orgy scene in the middle of the film that almost makes up for the shoddiness of the rest of it. On the other hand, one of its first sequences begins outside as two of the models begin to passionately embrace and then abruptly cuts to the rest of the scene taking place indoors, then cuts back to show "Artemisia" picking up clothing that was dropped in the scene. (Presumably, the wind made the performers too cold to continue and they headed indoors.)
