Chasing a musical "Temptation"
10 February 2007 | by diormeSee all my reviews

I have been trying to track this movie down for decades. Again, like our other friend in Australia, I saw it in Sydney (late-night) on free-to-air as part of an "adult" movie festival on Channel 10 it was, and I still remember it's haunting musical theme and have been trying to trace that too. I know it's not a great film but to me there is just something about it, maybe due to the music so if anyone can throw any light on the subject, I would appreciate it.I'm off to Amazon France to see what I can find. Something tells me that after looking at the movie's credits here, I think that maybe another composer did the English version, it HAS been known to happen before.
