Empty, talky fluff, but the women are insanely gorgeous
30 March 2007 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

I watched this unknown movie only because it has two of the most beautiful actresses who ever lived - Elke Sommer and Sylva Koscina - in its cast. I can't say I was completely disappointed - they both appear in skimpy clothing and they both are criminally sexy (the rest of the ladies are nice-looking as well) - but if you want to see them in a film that actually gives them something to do, check out their next pairing, the 1966 spy adventure "Deadlier than the Male". "Femmine di lusso" is meant to be a romantic comedy about the various relationships between the people who are travelling on a private cruise ship somewhere off the coasts of Italy. But there is so little chemistry between the pairs that we don't care who ends up with who; as for the comedy, the movie's only - and I do mean ONLY - joke is that the ship's owner thinks a photographer on board is gay and tries to keep his son away from him. The film is mostly talk, interrupted only for some sightseeing of the beautiful Italian locations. The silliest element: Elke Sommer is in love with the photographer I mentioned above, but he prefers looking at other girls and he considers her a burden (!!!). Having him kidnapped by aliens would have been more believable. (**)
