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 an explicit scene of oral sex. There is also an R-rated version with this scene removed. The uncut version was broadcast by accident on Canadian TV a few years ago. See more »
the movie is far more sophisticated and intelligent is its exploration of sexual tension than such American attempts as 9 and a half weeks...the courtroom scene itself...with the couple copulating in the cage while the heroine pleads for their orgasm...is amazing...I have not seen this movie in 20 years...but it made indelible pictures in my mind...it is rich in texture and successful in creating a world where sex is the engine for all activity, and at its bottom is the yawning angst that lives in us all....the plot is European, and it meanders a bit, but so does life...especially when you are 17 and have a constant hard on....
