Weak Addition to the Genre
9 September 2005 | by John_MclarenSee all my reviews

Weak addition to the French erotic oeuvre. Follows the path of those early 1980s softcore flicks that seemed to think that the path to eroticism was low lighting and fuzzy filming. The camera angles are peculiar and lack sensuality- and the nudity is awkwardly mishandled.

The French usually do it so much better. This is no Emanuelle.

The plot is minimal, and the women are not particularly cute. The hair styles are dreadful. It lacks the explicit frankness of the 1970s sexploitation and is all in all not worth your dollar, Euro or pound sterling.

This has been released as part of a set of French eroticism. Buy that- but not the movie on its own.
