If you're gonna get a new job, you're gonna have to have a letter of reference, from my father.
Well, your father might not think I've been working long enough.
I didn't mean for him to write it. But, I know what he'd say if he knew you as well as I do: She was passionate about her household duties.
And she kept things well in hand!
She gave everything she had to her employer.

All UK versions are substantially cut by the BBFC under the Protection of Children Act. A total of 3 minutes 20 secs were originally removed from all scenes showing a nude Sylvia Kristel and the boy in the same shot - thus heavily reducing the striptease, bath and 2 sex scenes. The 2006 release has been pre-edited by the distributors and suffers the same cuts. See more »

One Of A Kind Movie From The '80s
Great topic about a boy coming of age lead by an older mature woman. The movie gathered much publicity not only in the US, and Europe, but also in Asia when it came out.
The movie was made in the transitional time when the raw sexual expression of the '70s was starting to change to cuter expression of the '80s. It carries some of the sexual topics that were prevalent in the '70s, but the expression is much more juvenile and charming.
Silvia Kristel was spot on for the role. She was by then well known for her role in the movie "Emanuelle". The movie was like the "JAWS" of that segment of the movie industry. Just like Richard Dreyfus became a big star, Krystel rightfully became a star.
The movie doesn't have much story to it, but it's mostly about the comical scene of youngster getting seduced by an older woman. Even so, the movie keeps things entertaining, and it's a good movie even after all these years.
I kind of liked the subplot that went between Phillip and Sherman too.
A good movie that captures the culture of the early '80s.
