throws things at you out of left field right up to the last out
3 July 2007 | by desertboatSee all my reviews

I just watched this movie under the title "Triangle of Lust", from Czech auteur of 60's and 70's exotica Hurbert Frank. It was Friday night, pizza and a movie, except this week a baseball game was being aired. By the time the pie was hot my team's pitcher was cold, haven given up 3 home runs and it was only the 4th ending. And all to the same player! So it was back to the movie plan , one English dubbed exotic action adventure of some rarity.

Filmed in the enchanting Canary Islands, Spain,a young dark beauty has to bailout of a small plane; the angel. She washes up on the lush island that is being used by a couple of guys and their women as a hide-out, they're on the mean and nasty side; the beast. Back in the big city, the plot thickens and turns but never builds any suspense. I won't detail the plot any further, it's already forgotten. It's a routine action adventure story and predictable with the customary mix of escape attempts and love scenes, which are rather tame considering this was rated X originally. With the 78 minute run time and several abrupt scene jumps, it may have lost more then the German dialect when it was dubbed in English.

But it does boost several memorable scenes that save it. That is if you count a fistfight between two of the bad guys being joined by one of the women doing a modern dance around them in a clearing outside the house and some interesting horse play on the beach.

Putting things into perspective, this movie will be much more fun to watch then seeing your team down 9-1 in the 7th ending and it too throws things at you out of left field right up to the last out.
