Did You Know?


Last film produced by legendary French porn film producer Francis Mischkind, and last film directed by Burd Tranbaree. With 36 actresses, a strong plot and many locations, this was meant to be the most ambitious X-rated movie ever done on 35mm in France, before the taking-over of the video. See more »

Merely mediocre late-in-the-day Adult film from France
9 January 2017 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

To offer a different point-of-view from the Belgian revisionist who handles Euro porn on IMDb, I found this "Burd Tranbaree" feature less than enthralling, it resembling generic vintage porn from the continent. Certainly folks who dig orgies and don't like heavy characterizations or the sturm und drang of "serious" Adult Cinema will cotton to it, but I found the prolific pornographer facile and simple-minded, as usual.

Basic premise could fit any 1-day wonder circa 1971, made in the USA rather than the French product that followed 5 years later, of a wife who doesn't dig sex, though there are seemingly no other fractures in her marriage. The hubby is perennially horny, but all things turn out fine in that he gradually inculcates her to appreciate trying out new things and enjoying humping, with attending swingers' clubs and parties doing the trick.

Episodic feature quickly devolves into all-sex format, with over a dozen sex scenes packed into an 84-minute running time. Boasting a big cast with familiar Euro Porn talent mixing with normal looking folk (and absolutely no stunning or even moderately attractive femmes on view, a "naturalism" gimmick I appreciated only in the early reels) it goes nowhere, and can hardly support the significance placed upon it by any one of Flemish persuasion.

The title heroine reminded me of the wonderful British star Franki, who now mature adds sparkle to many a lousy Brit Porn video or latterly higher-toned product from the likes of Marc Dorcel. But unless one is overcome with nostalgia for the Golden Age of Adult Cinema (roughly 1973-83) or has an overwhelming fetish for hairy beavers, this "Initiation" is a big nothing.
