Quotes

[first lines]
Elena Martin: Paris, January 6th, 1940. Again, she wrote all night. She stretched, looked out at the rising sun, and bundled up against the early morning chill. As if drawn by some invisible force, she headed off across the awakening city.

You Get What You Pay For -- This one Delivers
3 January 2001 | by yojimbo999See all my reviews

Okay, folks, let's take a test. what do you expect when you rent a movie with the name "Zalman King" on the box? Anywhere on the box? You expect soft-core porn with pretentions of greatness and lensed in a slow-moving style, color-saturated, and all with Playboy-flair. This one delivers. Not only is it packed with wall to wall sex, but the lead actress, Audie England, is a good actress in serious need of better material. The setting is inspired and if you go in not expecting too much, you'll get your fill.
