Artistic sleaze
15 June 2004 | by lazarilloSee all my reviews

This is vaguely arty film which criticizes the decadence of landed nobility in Latin America and explores the perverse dialectic between power and sexuality. And of course, it's also a convenient excuse to show beautiful (and frequently naked) European actresses being abused and sexually degraded. David Hemmings is the spoiled and sexually-warped heir of a decrepit and nearly-bankrupt Venezuelan hacienda. His doting mother (Alida Valli) hires peasant girls from the nearby village to indulge her son in his perverse "games". His latest victim is played by Andrea Rau (who was Delphine Seyrig's vampiric lesbian sidekick in "Daughters of Darkness"). He locks her in a pen and starves her until she gives in to his sexual demands. He then plays various humiliating games with her--forcing her strip and dousing her with a hose, feeding her a maggot-filled loaf of bread, making her dress up like a bunny and run through the woods while he "hunts" her on horseback. Of course, he gets his comeuppance in the end but not before the requisite amount of nudity, sex, and misogynistic degradation has been achieved. I certainly wouldn't recommend this film to feminists (or to the vast majority of women for that matter), but it is fairly tasteful and restrained compared to many other films of its ilk. If you're into this sort of stuff but can't handle the rougher WIP, nunsploitation, or Nazi death camp movies, this one might be for you.
