What a campy gem
24 July 2009 | by WestMikeSee all my reviews

Found this one by chance when it was mentioned on a special interest forum. Being a fan of flicks showing 70s London I got the DVD – and was entertained in such a fine way! Firstly the campy settings, the non-existence of special effects and the funny cliché type personnel in the film (gay sex photographer, greedy sex show guests etc...) make it an extraordinary tour-de-bad-taste in B-film history. Secondly the hilarious humor thrown in at all points (e.g. when a doctor gets a nervous breakdown after examining the girl, finding no pulse and trying to re-animate her). But thirdly – and mostly – what I did not expect: the real sweet and romantic love story evolving throughout the film's episodes. I will not spoil anything here but give one comment: to feel love anyone needs a heart. You will know when having seen the film (recommended).

In total there is a lot of rather innocent nudity, a bit of foul language and a diversity of good ideas woven into this one. Plus a nice soundtrack. From me 8/10.
