Daniella, a fashion model, goes to Rome to replace a model who's been murdered. Once there, she meets two men, Count Castellani, whose clothes she'll model, and Karl Bauer, a reporter in the hotel room next to hers. Castellani gives Daniella the spotlight, which prompts jealousy from another model. Is he merely trying to seduce her? It's soon apparent that he has other plans as well: the line of clothes is a cover for smuggling and perhaps espionage. Daniella may be in danger - one model is dead already. Is Bauer to be her protector, or is he after something too? Is anyone who they seem? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

early 60's french wackyness
26 July 2001 | by googlemorfSee all my reviews

This one has a great jazz score, a peek-a-boo nude scene of star Elke Summer, spys and double crosses, action and killing, and yet it's all kinda slow. I found it a little confusing and my attention wandered, though I did like the look of early 60's France, with the clothes and the hairstyles. The print on the DVD could have been better: Lots of scratches. I wouldn't be surprised if it was transfered from a 16mm print. The trailer included is more entertaining.
