5.0 out of 5 stars Metzger's 60's Masterpiece... September 7, 2011
Format:DVD
[CAMILLE 2000 (Extended Version) -(1969)- Directed by Radley Metzger - Widescreen Presentation] Loosely based (and I do mean loose) on the classic Alexandre Dumas story, 'The Lady of the Camillas' - one of the few times a filmed erotic re-creation of a traditional title actually works without embarrassment - Radley Metzger finally actualized his attempts at merging arthouse sophistication and eroticism. This film, along with 'The Lickerish Quartet', stands proudly above his other work in the 60's, though no one can ever accuse him of not over-reaching in previous attempts. I personally found 'Score', released around the same time, to be a sordid, second-rate take on 'Bob and Carol, Ted and Alice' that never hit its mark (impoverished acting might have had something to do with it) but, in this instance, Metzger got the brass ring he so desperately sought and deserved.

The tale of a beautiful but self-destructive woman named Marguerite (captured by the striking Daniele Gaubert, who had appeared in about 20 films prior to this), whose addictions to drugs, sex and money are the focal point of most of the film, who later falls in love with an aristocratic young man named Armand (Nino Castelnuovo of 'The Umbrellas of Cherbourg') she meets at one of the notorious soirees she regularly threw at her villa for hip jet-setters and the extravagantly rich at the end of the late 60's - certainly a fantastic time to be either. Though she is kept by a grand Duke, has a host of other lovers and attends all the glamorous parties of the decadently entitled, her love for Armand leads her to run away with him on a yacht so they can concentrate on each other.

4.0 out of 5 stars A hip "La Traviata" December 14, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
Camille 2000 is a tale of a rich Italian businessman, Armand, who falls in love with Marguerite, a rich French Madam. The story follows the opera "La Traviata", which is not new territory for Metzger (Carmen, Baby), and is based on the Alexandre Dumas story "Lady of the Camellias". The most interesting aspect of this film is the use of color, the extravagant costumes, and the photography. This film has a reputation as being a sort of "soft-core" sex film, but actually it is very tame compared to many other adult films from that decade. The film does have some flaws, such as editing and acting, however it is visually soothing. The soundtrack by Piero Piccioni is the best psychedelic film music I have ever heard. A good choice for fans of that "Peter Max" look.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Upgrade for Classic Metzger Erotica October 17, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Last year, I reviewed the first release of Director Radley Metzger's Erotic classic which First Run Features culled from a worn 35mm negative but now , Cult Epics has released this wonderful revelation: an enhanced Director's cut which restores over 12 minutes of footage and brings Metzger's color images into the fold. The memorable music score by Piero Piccioni can be heard clearer than ever and now the film looks better than when it was projected in the theatres back in the day. The release is loaded with extras including a before and after restoration segment showing the process of sequences being cleaned up and polished, a great audio commentary track with Director Metzger and moderator Michael Bowen, a 20 minute behind the scenes featurette showing the actors on set , 2 extended isolated erotic scenes and trailers for other Metzger releases. This release is a must have if you adore and appreciate this film as I do and Cult Epics deserves major kudos for allowing cinema lovers the opportunity to view this masterpiece the way it was meant to be seen. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars This was the Agony and the Ecstacy December 11, 2011
By TNSr5r
Format:Amazon Instant Video
A powerful story and a great cinematic experience, Metzger was at the top of his game in Camille 2000. But this movie goes deeper than most on this topic.

You probably already know the story line -- a beautiful "jet setter" bought and paid for by a very rich count hosts frequent parties dedicated to the hedonism she so passionately pursues. She meets a man and they fall in love for a summer. Then the romance ends unexpectedly. The next few weeks and months are a predictable series of chance meetings at various parties where the couple attempt to be unaffected by the other while doing things to intentionally hurt each other. It seems the couple themselves are the only ones who cannot see the clear and obvious love still smoldering between them.

But this story goes much deeper than a simple summer romance about love won and then lost. All through the movie it is clear that this large cast of "the beautiful people" is nothing more than a group searching for real meaning in their lives and not finding it, resulting in the predictable substitution of physical pleasure for real meaning. We have all done it on some scale - not finding what we truly want so we settle for what we think we want or for what we believe is the best we will find. And history suggests that sensuality is the most effective substitute for real meaning.

As for all of us, sensuality works for a while for our central couple. But the truth seeps in no matter how badly we want it to stay out. It seems that the love our central couple feels for each other cannot withstand the forces attacking it. Then hurt, anger, and even bitterness becomes their constant companions.

Yet Metzger gives us so much more than this common and tragic story.
