Marie (Arno) is sent to a mansion on an island to help an older man (Paul Muller) take care of his daughters Lina Romay (playing the nymphomaniac Olivia) and Catherine Laferiere (playing the crippled/catatonic Linda). Family secrets ensue and a hidden trauma as well as casual and increasingly twisted sexual activities slowly unravel.
It's a fairly typical middle-period Franco with similarities to Female Vampire, Doriana Gray, and Eugenie de Sade. The plot is minimal and loose and stream-of-consciousness: Arno basically shows up to talk, watch, be seduced and sunbathe. The film presages his slower atmospheric and dream-like Golden Films from the '80s. Linda is moody and erotic, mostly due to the naked flesh on display and Arno's gaze. The camera loves her and she knows how to simply watch, as we do. The stunning Spanish location and the house in which it's shot also looks beautiful and tactile with its textures, stone details and plaster walls and plants. A slowburn of perversion and dread permeates. Franco uses some artistic lighting and effects, and there's a great (apparent) post-coital scene between Romay and Arno where Romay explains something while smoking and leaning against a doorframe that's bathed in red light.Read more ›
An AMAZING job was done in compiling interviews, restoring footage and even finding the non English speaking 'HARD BANANA' version that I viewed after watching the restored blu ray version of the film.
Great insight into the relationship between Franco and his longtime muse Lina Romay whose treatment of a banana in the film is definitely worth the price! First 2500 get the extra disc 'HARD BANANA' version so don't hesitate...
