The film was initially rejected for UK cinema in 1969 before being passed with cuts the following year, and the 1993 Redemption video release suffered 2 minutes 32 secs of cuts with heavy edits to a rape scene and shots of a boy watching a couple making love through a keyhole. The 2007 Shameless DVD restored some cuts though the rape scene was again cut by 1 min, due to BBFC policy on 'pleasure rape' scenes. See more »

A good idea, but that's about all
4 December 1998 | by Tito-8See all my reviews

This potentially interesting film falls flat mainly due to a VERY leisurely pace that sucks the life out of the movie. Instead, we are left with a somewhat kinky, rarely entertaining movie that probably could have been much better with a few adjustments. This film may prove to be of some interest to those who have seen other films named "Venus In Furs", and it is a pleasant distraction for fans of the gorgeous Laura Antonelli, but it would prove to be of little interest to anyone else.
