Product Description

Linda comes to the big city in search of fun and excitement. What she finds is exploitation and abuse at the hands of a succession of sleazy guys. Searching for love, she enters into a lesbian relationship with a beautiful countess, discovers drugs and swingers' parties and starts acting in porno movies. She also begins to write a secret diary... With a cast of some of the most stunning Euro actresses of the period, wall-to-wall sex and nudity, pot parties, porno shoots and a psychedelic soundtrack, this is a gem of 1970s exploitation cinema.

I never appreciated the films of Jesus Franco till I read the excellent article by Tim Lucas in his 'VIDEO WATCHDOG' magazine on how to approach and experience a Franco film. He said "once you have seen at least one, you will want to see them all". At that time, his films were not available except for extremely censored and bleached colored prints in dupey or discounted VHS tapes. Now in the digital age , companies such as Severin Films, Blue Underground , Image Entertainment and Mondo Macabro have discovered pristine negatives of his repertoire. Watching his films in year order, you begin to construct an incredible jigsaw puzzle of Franco's love for film, jazz and the appreciation of eroticism. This film, 'SINNER', comes after his series of films where he bridged his love for classic monsters such as Dracula and Frankenstein and started to blend soft and hard core sex into the mix. Here we have the story of a call girl, Linda, who sets up her john and pins her own murder suicide on him. The john's wife proceeds to investigate the murder as she seeks out Linda's acquaintances and loves and inevitably gets sucked up into the same world which drove Linda to her self destruction. All through the proceedings, Franco directs with incredible style never tipping the iceberg into sleaze territory. He also pays hommage to his earlier Vampire films 'VAMPYROS LESBOS ' and 'FEMALE VAMPIRE' with a strange Countess played by Anne Libert (the mind boggling bird woman from Franco's 'EROTIC RITES OF FRANKENSTEIN') taking over Linda's life. Franco stalwart and friend Howard Vernon also cameos as a svengali-like doctor.Read more ›

suprisingly well made jess franco pic, with beautiful female lead. A downbeat and challenging story of young innocent womens descent into drink, drugs and the sex industry. If your expecting youre typical franco sleazefest you may be disapointed, having said that there is still quite a lot of eurobabe flesh on display here, notably the beautiful anne libert as a mysterious countess. This has a great soundtrack and overall is a very good film. This disc offers a nice transfer and some good extras. A must for all franco fans.

This eagerly anticipated and welcomed new release from Mondo Macabro is a breath of fresh air in the pantheon of sleazemeister Jess Franco's oeuvre, and took a lot less time to get to us than 'Lorna the Exorcist', which was announced as a new release last summer, but still hasn't seen daylight at the time of this review. Hopefully soon. It's fairly typical early 70's Franco fare with boatloads of time-honored retro nudity and fetching Euro sexkittens sporting see-through miniskirts and tops, thigh-high boots, 5" platforms, fringed tops and skirts, dancing and writhing around like sensual slow-motion snakes on acid laced with Demerol - I ask you, what's not to love?

It opens exactly like 'Succubus' starring Janine Reynaud and a slew of other Franco flicks from the late 60's/ early 70's (but I'm not inferring this is necessarily a bad thing) as well as Lucio Fulchi's 'Perversion Story' (with the ever-enticing Marissa Mell) from '69, where two attractive women perform Sapphic sexual scenarios before a live, paying audience in some seedy Spanish nightclub where voyeurs find heaven here on earth. This flick was made shortly after the tragic death of Franco muse actress Soledad Miranda and prior to his 'discovery' of Lina Romay the following year and stars the comely Montserrat Prous in the lead role, Anne Libert, Jacqueline Laurent and Kali Hansa as the other delectable Eurovixens. The entire film devotes itself to the exposure of the underbelly of the beast that is the miasma of strippers, prostitutes, drug parties, alcoholic abuse, lesbos, nymphs, swingers parties and porno sets - again, what's not to love? It's a Garden of Eden for sleaze enthusiasts everywhere, so suck it up and rejoice my brethren; it's exploitation at its finest and filthiest.

In Jesus Franco's "Le journal intime d'une nymphomane" AKA "Sinner: Diary of a Nymphomaniac" from 1973, lovely 'Linda Vargas' (Monserrat Prous) was a young lady who had an insatiable appetite for sex (with women mostly), and whose life was on an unfortunate downward spiral. It also featured: sexy Jaqueline Laurent 'Rosa Ortiz', the beautiful Anne Libert 'Countess Anna de Monterey', Kali Hansa 'Maria Toledano', Howard Vernon 'Doctor', etc. I'll be honest, although I'm not a fan of Franco's work, I have to say this offering was not as bad as some of his other films from the same period. And the reason I liked this one is plainly obvious! Not only did we get to enjoy the lovely female-figure of Monserrat Prous, but there was also Anne Libert, Jaqueline Laurent, and Kali Hansa too (however, I'm actually in doubt as to Kali Hansa's original gender, she looked like a transsexual?). Doris Thomas 'Mrs. Schwartz - the photographer' definitely was, did you see the size of her hands, and how she picked-up and carried 'Linda' in her arms during the photo-shoot! I do know that Kali Hansa's real name was Marisol Hernandez, but she had the tell-tell signs of a transsexual (Franco has used a lot of them in his films too). If anyone can clear this up, I'd be very interested to know the verdict! I'm definitely not in doubt as to the real gender of Monserrat Prous, Anne Libert, and especially the simply delectable Jaqueline Laurent's 'chatte poilue'! In any event, this film will best be appreciated by fans of the 'euro-cult/exploitation-films' but we already knew that! The DVD picture and sound quality by Mondo Macabro is excellent. NTSC, French (English subtitles), English (dubbed), extras, NR 86 mins.

Love and Peace,
Carlos Romero
