Storyline

Orphaned by smallpox, young Lancashire country lady Fanny Hill cheerfully accepts her friend Esther Davies's offer to join the London 'working girls' with Mrs. Brown, a madam who recruits her as charmingly fresh enough to wait, in-living, on gentlemen. The first night, her room- and bed-mate Phoebe starts her sexual 'education', next she revels in being fitted her first-ever fancy frock. Her first 'client', Mr. Crofts, is neither naive nor attractive, rather a paying old rapist who isn't satisfied. Then the party scene, where men are younger and more charming. Handsome merchant's son Charles Standing declares love at first sight and offers to take Fanny away. After a few heavenly days of young love, they intend to demands Sir's blessing for their marriage, but as the ogre actually was her unsatisfied customer, Charles is made to choose between her and his future and leaves for colonial India. Being destitute, Fanny accepts becoming the kept woman of Mr. H., an earl's wealthy brother, ... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Although the word "fanny" is nowadays widely used as British slang for the female genitals, and has been since the 19th century, this connotation was unknown at the time when John Cleland wrote his novel. Consequently, lines such as Mrs Coles's "Be gentle with my little Fanny, sir" would not have been seen as double-entendres. See more »

Goofs

When Mr. Norbert dies at climax after making love to Fanny, he collapses on top of her, falling toward her left side. But in the next shot while she is calling for help, he is collapsed on her right. See more »

Quotes

[Mr. Crofts sees Fanny Hill for the first time and looks lustfully at her]
Mr. Crofts: Very pretty. Very pretty. Come here, my dear. So you're fresh from the country, are you, Fanny?
Mrs. Brown: And as innocent as the day she was born. That's guaranteed, warranted, signed and sealed, sir. The genuine article.
[whispers to Mr. Crofts]
Mrs. Brown: And down below I guarantee you'll find she's as tight as the Chatsworth lock on the national safe deposit.

Moral of the Film - Sex is Overrated
27 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

I started watching the film thinking that it was the usual period drama but was soon bombarded with scene after scene of nudity and sex. And I thought, surely there has to be some reason for this. It soon dawned on me that apart from the feminist theme and the blurring of morals whereby we tend to sympathize with Fanny and justify her actions, the underlined message is that sex is overrated. The film gradually deromanticizes sex until it becomes grotesque.

For those of you who are starry-eyed, this film will ground you in the realities of human relationships. I give it a 6 because the plot was implausible.
