Josefine Mutzenbacher: I can't help it, if you don't approve me. I know it might be hard to convince you that I was very unsophisticated, when I first begun. It took me some time to get a little famous. It was a long, hard struggle to reach the position I'm in.

Porn Perfection?
17 June 2009 | by markaoconSee all my reviews

Dare I say it, but this is probably one of the best porn movies on the planet. OK, it's dubbed, but it's done well. There are plentiful scenes and it doesn't drag like a lot of modern movies. The story works well and builds and builds up so you had better invest in some Kleenex cos you won't make it through the first half hour without popping at least once.

The sets, costumes, lighting and locations are great and the girls are downright dirty and sexy. I wish modern directors would watch this to show how a good porno film should be done.

The themes are quite strong, which is what makes it good. It goes into adult carnal fantasies that are extreme, but never try and gross you out.

All in all the film has great humour and is sooooo sexy I doubt that there is anything of this quality on the market today.
