For legendary producer Pierre Braunberger (SHOOT THE PIANO PLAYER), it was the most enticing of challenges: Invite the three most controversial directors in modern erotic cinema to indulge their fantasies in one daring film. The result remains one of the most uniquely sensual motion pictures of our time.
In the first story from director Just Jaeckin (EMMANUELLE, GWENDOLINE), a castaway sailor is rescued by a tribe of succulent native women - led by the stunning Laura Gemser of BLACK EMANUELLE fame - who soon reveal their most unusual appetites. Then director Shuji Terayama (FRUITS OF PASSION) explores the haunting tale of a Japanese boy seduced by the riddle song of a village madwoman. And in the bold adaptation of a short story by De Maupassant, director Walerian Borowczyk (IMMORAL WOMEN, THE BEAST) reveals the torrid liaison between a Parisian gentleman, a Follie Bergere prostitute and an unexpected surprise that hides in the night.

Arthouse filmmaker Borowczyk confounded his high-brow audience who couldn't understand why the celebrated painter, sculptor and animator had turned to erotic themes. Here, surprisingly, his is the most gentle of the three stories, a beautiful adaptation of a guy de maupassant tale. My favorite of the three.
Just Jaeckin delivers a haunting tale of a French man stranded on an island with a tribe of strange women.
The Japanese one is the most surreal of all, with a plot hard to describe in a sentence. Gorgeous and haunting.
If you are looking for something interesting and intelligent, check this out. If you want sleaze or porn, look elsewhere.
The first story is by Just Jaeckin about a ship wrecked sailor which has an ending that was easy to see from a mile away. So that was boring and not really sexy. True, lots of nudity, but so what?
The second story is a tad more interesting. A Japanese director, Shuji Terayama, tells the story of a man searching for the words of a song he heard as a kid. A tad confusing, but kind of like a riddle that haunts you even while you try to forget it. Sexy? Well, once again there is nudity and suggestions of incest, but to call is erotica is still using a term that is too strong in this case.
Then the third film, by Walerian Borowczyk, was a boring story based on a short story that, for all I know, was just as boring. While the ending was depressing it wasn't all that surprising.
So there you have it. Lots of nudity, two duds and an interesting short story. Worth buying? You be the judge. Extras include talent bios and an interview with Just Jaeckin.
