Better with the sound turned off.

Jess Franco went from France to Italy to Spain to Brasil, leaving a trail of classic low-budget art along the way. This film takes advantage of his skills as a movie producer and his access to hot Brasilian girls. If you're a fan of Women-In-Prison films, you'll want this one in your library. Franco is a warden of sorts who runs a private prison in the Brasilian jungle. Girls are sent in and used as sex slaves for paying guests. Eventually his business operation unfolds when authorities get too close to the truth. This film has the usual elements with a jungle twist - a giant bamboo cage that doubles as prisoner barracks, a plantation house that serves as the warden's admin building and residence, numerous hot European and Brasilian girls that serve as sweaty prisoners and sex slaves, and an escape attempt where the girls lose their clothing in the jungle. The only thing really missing is the big over-the-top torture scene that these sorts of films require in order to become classics. Unfortunately, this film comes up short in that respect. But what it lacks in quality of bondage-style punishment, it makes up for in quantity of beautiful girls.
Watch this film first with the sound on, then watch it again with the sound turned off so that you don't have to listen to the bad lip-synched dubbing. It's like watching two different movies.
