Blanca Marsillach looks great, everything else just so-so
25 March 2001 | by See all my reviews

Not exactly a cinematic classic, but it's okay as foreign films go. Corinne Clery got a top billing, but she played only a minor character in this film. The real star was Blanca Marsillach, and she was pretty good, inasmuch as I can tell in a film that appeared to be dubbed. Her sweet, innocent look was a good one for the violent revenge she takes. (Man, I wish European actresses would shave their armpits, though) Also in the early scenes where "Johnny" was playing the saxophone, it was painfully obvious that he was not. Grade: C+
