Customer Review

on October 25, 2009
An erotica film with a plot that shows just how trashy Homer could be. It's a re-imagining of Homer's Odyssey, where Odysseus (Ulysse, in this version) is a trucker delivering refrigerators who's been too-long on the road. His wife (Pamela) waits for him loyally as men loiter at Ulysse' home, a busy truck stop. Along the way, Ulysse is "regretfully" sidetracked by the sorceress Calypso (played by post-op transsexual Ajita Wilson), waylaid by bandits and makes a narrow escape from a big-boned, lusty cyclops bartender. Meanwhile, Pamela wards off suitors with excuses, and her waitresses make up impossible sexual contests a suitor must overcome in order to win Pamela's hand. Rather than the two decades Odysseus was lost in the Odyssey, Ulysse is gone for a year, but that's not bad for a soft-core flick. This film would likely give students of classical literature a migraine, but I thought that it was a lot of fun, and much more thoughtful than what passes for parody in recent years.

"Truck Stop" (a.k.a. "L'amour chez les poids lourds") is a good example of 70s-era European erotica, albeit softcore. There are plenty of topless scenes, implied sex, but probably more on the high end of "R" than an adult movie. It's got corny dialogue, artistic pretensions it couldn't possibly fulfil, and a fair but silly voice-over. Know what you're getting into, but I liked it.
