I saw this in Istanbul years ago
27 August 2002 | by turkamSee all my reviews

I must admit I remember the candid, tacky sex scenes about this more than anything else. I would hardly call it a good film, but certainly an intriguing one. I have to wonder how the other 13 voters saw this? I know it must be very hard to find in the USA. Worth a cheap thrill, if you have the time which I somehow did that afternoon in Turkey!
