Before the video age set in, the makers of pornographic films were a bit more adventurous. The genre conventions were less established and a few things were tried out one would rarely ever see in more recent products.
To begin with, this piece has a plot. Womanising Italian lingerie entrepreneur Ricardo Bertini tries to launch his newest collection in France, and - as you do - bed the local talent along the way. Problem is: his pretty new secretary Lisa won't play ball; partly because of his womanising, and partly because she rather plays doll, especially with her girlfriend Minouche. Then there is a plot twist as Ricardo gets kidnapped by the local brainless criminals - a nice opportunity for the director to fit some bondage scenes in; poor Ricardo suffers some abuse many men would pay good money for. Ricardo cannot pay the ransom, as he's broke, but Lisa (who comes from a wealthy family) bails him out and eventually true love prevails. Aaah.
Astonishingly, given that this is hardcore porn, the leads never have sex with each other. They simply get married at the end. Such an old-fashioned romantic resolution is extremely rare in this genre.
