60s lesbian pulp fiction
16 November 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

based on the long-censored novel by Laure charpentier and finally brought to the big screen and directed by the author as well. Lou Dillon stars as the titular character and she suited the role exquisitely. the move is set in the 1960s lesbian underworld of Paris, and the way she carries herself to her mannerisms and strut she is every bit the refined young man she portrays. Dillon relishes the character that she plays and looks every bit the part of gigolo who spends her evenings wandering through the lesbian nightclubs and cabarets flirting and ca noodling with potential suitors. gigolo eventually begins a relationship with a wealthy, older aristocrat by the name of Odette who lavishes gigolo with money and a sports car in return for sexual favours. that saying, the sex/love scenes which there are plenty of are not particularly graphic and are tastefully shot. i found the storyline a bit too fast paced and scenes were quickly cut off before moving onto the next one. one needs to be fairly quick when reading the subtitles and understanding what is going on in the storyline. i liked the musical numbers and the classy feel and look inside the nightclubs and how everyone took part in the festivities and were not ashamed of being openly lesbian or gay. an interesting piece of cinema for people looking for something different.
