Editorial Reviews

Silvia (Haydee Politoff) is young, beautiful and rich. She has everything -except the bondage and humiliation she craves to fulfil her erotic yearnings. Margaret (Rosanna Schiaffino) is a legendary movie star who loves to wade thigh high in 10,000 lira bank notes - and who is only too happy to give Silvia what she wants. In a strange, secluded house in Rome, the two women create a bizarre private world where Silvia's fantasies become real, as Margaret turns her into a slave, a plaything of flesh, subject to the whims of an all powerful owner who can use her in any way she desires. Pasquale Festa Campanile (Hitch-Hike) directs a masterpiece of decadence, packed with sumptuous and shocking images. A brand new HD transfer from the original Techniscope negative. From the director of The Libertine and When Women Had Tails. Based on a scandalous European novel in the tradition of Story of O and The Image.

A huge 'thank you' to Mondo Macabro for finding this rare bit of Italo ero-weirdness and making it available in a great package. I initially became aware of this film waaay back in the late 60's, when it was first released, via some 'production promo stills' in a men's magazine. The pix included several hot fetish images of pony girl action and whipping scenes with (for the day) remarkably high production values and great looking women. It was noted in the article that the film was Italian and it was entitled: "The Slave" - that was the last I ever saw or heard of it back then and over the succeeding years I had searched the internet in vain looking for any trace of it - now: "hallelujah!" Mondo Macabro has 'found it' and given it a 1st class presentation!

As is explained in the detailed extras included on both of the DVD & Bluray formatted disks - this film was made by the prolific Italian Writer/Director; Pasquale Festa Campanile - based upon a best selling erotic book of the day entitled "Check To The Queen" (in Europe) & "The Slave" (in N. America). The plot follows the story of a beautiful, bored, young, aristocratic woman with masochistic tendencies who becomes the willing servant/slave of a wealthy actress/mistress and the kinky games that they get up to, and where it all leads. Whereas the source novel followed in the footsteps of previously published Euro erotic S/M tales, such as "The Story of O" and "L'Image' - the film: 'The Slave' pre-dated (by nearly a decade!) many like cinematic eroductions, such as, French director Just Jaekin's (1970's) movie versions of "The Story of O", and the (John Willie B&D comics inspired) 'Perils of Gwendeline" - both of which contained similar fetish elements.

This movie has pretensions of being a cerebral work, so if you are looking for hot girl-on-girl action, intense ponygirl scenes or sadistic whippings, better stick to the internet and the short movie delivery system that must not be named.

The story concerns the "countess", Sylvia, who is portrayed as agoraphobic and submissive to an extreme degree, taking employment as a "companion" to a famous starlet, Margaret, who makes it clear she is paying for someone to whom she can dominate (in a non-overtly sexual context I might add). Yes there is nudity, well, here are topless scenes, but Margaret hates lesbians and doesn't seek that response from Sylvia.

Sylvia has many bizarre fantasy dream sequences, filmed in low-res and slow-motion for the most part, involving bondage, some rather laughable and entirely unconvincing whipping (which might have been the point, emphasizing the dream-like quality of the pseudo-violent fantasy from the submissive's viewpoint, I dunno) and some pony play. It also involves one of the fattest men I've ever seen on film, wearing some sort of loincloth/leather belt costume. I think this was intended to ensure that there was no chance of enjoying those sequences on a prurient level. Worked for me. I wanted to wash out my eyes with battery acid after one otherwise tame scene.

Sylvia gradually becomes more and more submissive, refusing to stand up for herself in any way, enjoying the security that not having to think for herself or deal with the outside world in any way brings. Margaret goes from petty and childish behavior such as throwing things on the floor just to see Sylvia pick them up, to using Sylvia as a Barbie doll and playing dress-up with her. There is no hint of Lesbian eroticism in these scenes.

This one was originally released way back in 1969 under the title "Scacco alla regina" (English translation: "Check to the Queen"), and was about a pretty younger woman, Silvia (23-year old Haydée Politoff) willingly allowing herself to be enslaved by a bitchy, domineering actress named Margaret (30-year-old Rosanna Schiaffino). But despite the enormously erotic lesbian-overtones involving a dominant older woman finding herself in possession of a beautiful younger woman, this film chooses not to go in that direction! It's seriously flawed by the simple fact that the dominant older woman here isn't interested in sex with girls. I'm guessing that Italy in '69 wasn't yet ready for a film focusing on a purely lesbian sub/dom relationship, despite Silvia's complete willingness to act the part, and to do whatever it takes to please her new mistress.

There's a great scene towards the very end where I was certain we were finally going to witness a highly-erotic girl/girl sexual encounter --- it was all set-up so perfectly --- Margaret tears off most of Silvia's dress and wrestles the pretty girl to the floor --- but after a brief kiss to get things started the older woman suddenly-&-inexplicably demands that Silvia leave the room immediately, and the very next day she holds an AUCTION among her decadent-wealthy-friends to sell Silvia to the highest bidder.

Again, look at that DVD box-cover and tell me this this video should have been about an older lesbian woman enjoying her pretty female slave sexually. Instead we get a bitchy actress bathing together with the girl, occasionally stripping and even whipping her --- but that's all. It's erotic, but also quite frustrating for those of us wishing for something more!
