Storyline

Barbara, a frustrated writer who is also sexually frustrated, seeks to recharge her life by moving into a Manhattan apartment, where she earns money typing up manuscripts for other writers. Next door, a sexy young lady plays a variety of erotic games revolving around her hypnotically humming vibrator. When Julie, Barbara's hot-to-trot sister shows up, she reluctantly allows her to stay, even though memories of incestuous girlhood explorations between them cause her obvious distress. Julie soon seduces one of her sister's male clients (whose advances Barbara had earlier spurned) and gets involved with the girl next door, her entourage and her toys. Barbara soon finds that her long walks in the park no longer provide adequate resistance to her unfulfilled passions and curiosity about the sounds emanating from behind the wall.

sex toys and organ solos
5 January 2004 | by goblinhairedguySee all my reviews

This middle-period Sarno opus concentrates more than usual on the erotic scenes and heaving breasts, and for once probably satisfied the raincoat crowd as much as puzzling them. For fans of the auteur, there's plenty of psychological intensity and moral irony, as well as a neat jazzy organ score -- like Fassbinder, Sarno was continually recombining his major themes and stylistic tropes in clever new variations. Quite uncharacteristically, a nosy Brooklyn-accented cleaning lady is used as a comic Greek chorus, punctuating the action with her inquisitions. (The SWV video box gives the date as 1969, whereas the 1967 date given by IMDB and other sources seems correct.)
