This movie was filmed in 1969 for the German market, like Venus in Furs (1969). It was banned by Italian censors in 1975. it was finally released in Italy after all the sex scenes were cut and replaced with judicial scenes. See more »
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 »
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.
