10 November 2006 | by PoloBurroSee all my reviews

I don't understand the voting on this. Perhaps because this is just too far from the mainstream. It is so different to US and European movies of today, although it is perhaps closer to some of the exploitation pics of the '70s.

It is a little confused as to what it is (it mixes Russ Meyer with Benny Hill in its comedic moments and is quite dark in its more dramatic scenes), but this is part of its charm. The story is insane and almost irrelevant, the music, belly dancing and hot gypsies are the heart of this movie.

It's also extremely well made, beautifully shot, has a great cast is the sexiest film I've seen in years.

If you think Russ Meyer and Tinto Brass have their moments, then you'll love this film. Ignore the votes and get yourself a copy immediately.
