Storyline

Franek is a talented art forger and painter who along with his loyal assistant Hazel - herself a talented artist - are commisioned by a glamorous madam to produce a piece for her brothel to hopefully drum up more business. Although his subjects at the brothel are beautiful, he yearns for more and calls upon his assistant to find more models. Stephanie, a beautiful and strong minded political activist who freshly expelled from university for her views answers the call and takes an instant liking to the shy painter. Her young friend Julia would be a perfect subject too, but she has recently been arrested for escaping the bonds of her cruel and much older husband, who just happens to be an influential police officer. The group literally (and metaphorically) free Julia meaning that Franek can hopefully complete what should be his masterpiece and hopefully find love for himself. Written by Mondo Squallido

User Reviews

The traditional Hungarian music is good!
22 September 2020 | by biljao258See all my reviews

The traditional Hungarian orchestra which provides the soundtrack, the bucolic settings and the cinematography are quite good. But the movie seems to be made by a director and cast with an offbeat sense of humour -it's a kinky story with minimal dialogue and undeveloped characters and really choppy editing set in a quaint folkloristic milieu. To go further over the top, there's frequent male and female nudity and gratuitous "full on" sex scenes ( lesbo and hetero). But hey, just watch it for the music.
