3.0 out of 5 stars Not Quite The Film It Could Have Been... June 26, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Reading the synapsis for this flick you'd think you've stumbled onto the Holy Grail of Laura Gemser, Annie Belle and Joe D'Amato exploitation flix. Yeah, I did too, but this simply isn't the case. Maybe my expectations were too high, but I was disappointed. Sure, we've got luscious Laura brought back from Africa as a 'gift' given to the White Hunter who saved her Abyssinian Chief father from his enemies (a fair trade?) strolling around semi-nude while the white women, Annie Belle (a secretary) and Lili Carati (the Hunter's wife), who've been having sapphic sessions in his absence, feign horror at the "smelly negroid woman" (no joke) thrust into their 1940's societal lives. When asked why she's never fully clothed, she replies, "White women have ugly bodies so they cover them to deceive their men". Classic. And we've got all the elements necessary for the Holy Grail of Eurosleaze, but something's missing. Most of the sex scenes are girl/girl until the end and are brief or edited. Annie Belle doesn't get fully naked, Laura is in only one worthwhile scene (a travesty), Lili's scenes are brief but the best, and the big finale sex scene was full of promise, but ultimately disappoints by showing us nothing. An abundance of missed opportunities left me wanting more. It's an OK soft-core flick that D'amato didn't have his heart in, like most of his 80's output. It's a box of fancy wrapped chocolates you can't wait to sink your teeth into, only to unwrap, bite down and find them hollow...

5.0 out of 5 stars Music and chicks excellent. June 21, 2014
No, I dont like Laura Gemser at all. The main point for this flick is private music--tune by one instrument changing by D'Amato in all proper places. Sure, he managed do same in his other movies like Midnight Gigolo. Very minimalist approach actually helps make mood and story. I should say realism is D'Amato strong point like in Pleasure and he is not afraid touch strange topics.
