LUSH AND EROTIC
4 November 2002 | by jonpdSee all my reviews

This is true erotica here, folks. One of the first erotic films I had ever seen, I viewed this on Cinemax about 10-11 years ago. I haven't been able to track it down since, but Josie Bissett is one of the most gorgeous women I have ever laid eyes on. The Italian settings and the steamy sex scenes make for a pretty engaging erotic movie. Not intended to be a pure masterpiece, it is nonetheless worthy of any artisitic movielover's collection.
