Several nude scenes were filmed, but tend to be excluded from the U.S. version of the movie. They include: Robin Hawdon and Victoria Vetri's love-making in the cave and the scene where they both go skinny-dipping. The aforementioned nude scenes are featured in the U.K. version (as Victoria Vetri revealed in a 1984 interview). See more »
The complete lack of any modern language helps enormously. Lots of pantomime and tasteful eye-candy for both sexes. The people are very athletic and attractive. Their movement over vast location sets is an impressive work-out. Never dawdles. Very good photography and effects -- for the time, well integrated. Not a low-budget hack-up job. More plausible than any opera I've seen; kinda like a ballet without a consistent musical score.
