Controversial as the first major film in recent memory to feature a well-known, mainstream actress performing an unsimulated sex act on screen. Maruschka Detmers later expressed some regret at the scene because she said it overshadowed her other accomplishments. See more »
Two versions of this film exist. The original, European edit (released unrated on video in North America) contains a hardcore oral sex scene. There is also an R-rated version with this scene removed. The hardcore version was broadcast by accident on Canadian TV a few years ago. See more »
The movie was promoted as a really sensual love story. There is more about it. If you know the history of Italy in the 80's, Red Brigades, left wing revolutionaries students or are interested to learn more, it's a good start. A big part of contemporary western Europe history. Italy and France really entered the capitalistic word in the 80's, and of course there was a left wing reaction of people for who America and the European Union capitalistic project was not the role model to follow. Every weeks, there were political murder, terrorist attacks and kidnappings. If you had some hot sex scenes and beautiful Marushka Detmers, you have a pretty good and interesting movie.
