Driven in a quest for artistic glory, he's encouraged by his agent to produce a volume of erotic nudes showcasing the perfect layouts for his favorite model, Leslie. He can't seem to get exactly what he wants from her photos, and then the mysterious Joyce appears on the scene. She has no money or place to stay, so Henning takes her in and she takes him in to her web of deceitful agendas, bisexual manipulations and ruinous intent.
There are also a handful of other models he photographs in the nude, two of which also succumb to the cat-like clutches of the vixen in various trysts. The minx plays havoc with his lifestyle, professional and personal love life without his awareness, as he's too wrapped up in his 'groovy' pictures to notice. (As the jazz giant Miles Davis used to say, "That's why they call 'em 'bitches' - 'cause bitches are treacherous").
The B+W (and the lens man's hairy back) will turn most of you away from viewing, but I'm old enough to appreciate the nuances that black and white imagery brings to the table. The nudity is plentiful; the babes easy on the eyes and the picture and contrast are great for a flick of its age, though there is some faint audio hissing in the background. There's some campy African drumming underscoring the 'primal' sexual passages onscreen, and the dialogue is a 'gas'.Read more ›
That being said, the story was good. The way the scenes were filmed was really well done. Considering the year it was made, the sapphic love scenes were quite graphic and well staged.
I was able to get into the devious web our anti-heroine was weaving and really enjoyed the casual way the social stigma about lesbianism in America in the 1960's was handled.
Like I said, the picture quality is poor but the story and film style made it well worth it
which is thoughtful at least, the acting is terrible, the storyline preposterous and the total experience ultimately
tedious. I guess the lesson for me is 'beware of Frenchmen bearing analyses'.
I suppose when all's said and done, Sarno never saw his work as anything other than disposable, it's 'sexploitation'
for goodness sake and it's no better or worse than it ought to be.

Just an awful movie. Appears to have been produced by the same type of people who made high school movies about sex but really had no idea how procreation actually took place. Read morePublished 3 months ago by John J. Falkenstine
