Even as a big fan of Franco's films, this one is up there as one of his most drab. Made in a year when he worked on 11 films, some incomplete, it unfortunately really shows. There is some atmospheric lighting and nice sets with gorgeous furnishing, but these are typically not used to their full potential and lack no real substance. The story is near incomprehensible, often interlaced with incessant shots of someone sitting on a bed, walking through a hallway, and then awkwardly zoomed-in softcore. For an 80 minute film, it feels like it goes on forever, skimping on the erotica and atmosphere, and ultimately ending with no real payoff.
On the plus side, Lina Romay looks as fine as ever, showcasing some very attractive outfits throughout, often though only for a minute or two. Only one scene in the film is particularly worth viewing, that of a rather infamously seductive scene involving Lina and a banana.
In all, this should be near the bottom of your list when checking out Franco's films, if not maybe skipping it altogether and just viewing the standout Lina scene if you're a fan. As much as it pains me to say it, but this is a highly disappointing film that I was really looking forward to.
