Format: DVD
In this movie, a young Tom Berenger portrays a young man in Post-World War II Hungary who falls in and out of love with numerous older women. His character's infatuation with older women begins as a child during the war, when he loses his virginity to a middle-aged prostitute. From there, he moves to Budapest to go to college, and moves in with an older woman, portrayed by Karen Black. They fall in love with each other. Then the woman's best friend, portrayed by Canadian stage actress and artist Marilyn Lightstone, joins them in social events. Eventually, Ms. Lightstone's character seduces Berenger's character, and in a memorable scene of seduction, she entices him to have sex with her on the living room floor. But Ms. Black's character catches them in the act, and she breaks up with Berenger's character and kicks him out. Berenger then falls in love with a female resistance leader during the 1956 Hungarian Crackdown by Russian troops and tanks. She departs for deep cover, and Berenger's character emigrates to Canada. It is there that he begins a relationship with a woman more closer to his age, portrayed by a young Helen Shaver. Eventually they engage in a erotic strip scene before having sex together. But they end up breaking up also. At the end of the film, Berenger is now a teacher, who sets up a date with a younger female student, and the film ends. The eroticism is very good in this film, but it leaves you wanting more. For me, Marilyn Lightstone, despite her little screen time, stole the spotlight with her eroticism and her sexy body. Helen Shaver shows that she is willing to put out in a movie, also. She would go on to even greater levels of eroticism in the movie "Desert Hearts".Read more ›

Oh, for a Time Machine. . .some metaphysical contraption to take me back to the Seventies, when I first saw and enjoyed this cute little movie. Back in those heady days, I was able to lustily envy a young dude who embarks on a series of steamy affairs with attractive women almost twice his age, to gawk and gander while the muscular protagonist sweats and grunts and groans--then collapses exhausted into the nurturing arms of his mature lover.
But, time marches on, and so does my perception. Almost thirty years after its theatrical release, I now watch IN PRAISE OF OLDER WOMEN and subsequently fidget and squirm with discomfort. And that's not because the story is any less intriguing: on the contrary, it's all the more alluring as I wax nostalgia from the distance of middle age. What bothers me--annoys me, actually--is the lack of production quality for this film: from shabby lighting, to mumbling audio, to a musical score that literally makes you reach for the "Mute" button.
But there are other troubling problems. Young Andras Vayda (Tom Berenger) is a young Hungarian with a wandering eye for the older ladies. And Andras does find love (the rascal) in his turbulent, war-torn country--a country desperately trying to break free from Soviet domination. Yet when Andras participates in the ill-fated Hungarian Revolution of 1956, the event is filmed in a sound stage the size of my living room (so much for scale). Forced to flee Hungary, Andras takes his appetite to Montreal, and the trysts continue.
Some of the "older women" include Karen Black, Susan Strasberg, and Helen Shaver. The "mature scenes" were certainly provocative in the Seventies, but are bland by today's standards.

This hard to find movie shows "the promise" of Tom Berenger's career. He was fun to watch as he beds one lady after another. It's also fun to see a sexy movie without a lot of politically correct thought.

As he grows older, each lady has an imapct on his life and brings more aspects of his character into view.

All in all, this is just a fun sexy romp reflecting the times and history.

Actually, O. B. Tryggvason, a DVD version of this movie has been released (got mine at Walmart). That's how I got to know this movie. All in all, I think it's quite decent. On contrar, D. Mikels, considering this movie is only rated R (and not other adult categories), I would consider this movie quite steamy even for today's standard.

I know the movie was made almost 30 years ago.However it definately portrayed sexual understanding or lack of it in some cases based on experience and individual maturity.A little far fetched but an entertaining movie.Most men and some women knows someone like the main charachter.

I bought this movie because I'm a fan of Tom Berenger; when I was a teen 20+ years ago, I had a huge crush on him. He was a hunk in his day, I'll give him that. He was in his 20s here, I believe. However, this movie was a flop for me. I have no problem with the fact that it's all about sex. I expected something sensual and erotic; I expected Berenger to be exciting. Instead, I saw an awkward, clumsy, uncomfortable Berenger attempt to get it on with many women, and the dialogue and acting throughout were terrible. In addition, we see both the women's nudity and Tom's; he even flashes his kibbles and bits a couple of times moving around on the bed; again, it all seems awkward. This could've been so much better than it actually was; I know Berenger was playing someone a lot younger and a lot more inexperienced, but he had no passion or energy in this film at all. The sex scenes seemed as if everyone felt they had to force themselves to do it and try to enjoy it. By contrast, his sex fantasy scene with Daphne Zuniga in "Last Rites" was much more erotic. I don't recommend this film unless you want to see Berenger naked and having sex like a robot; that's all this film is about.
