Sizzling French erotic entry of a couple entangled with another
I did not give this a 10 due to lighting. How much of the problem with this print was due to American distributor: Excalibur I don't know but there is a break in the middle and inexplicable lighting problems which I doubt a talent of Max Pecas' abilities would overlook, yet it has happened before.
Deauville France is the setting and a charming country home. A 30 something married couple agree to have as a guest, depending on which description is accurate either:
1. the wife's niece or 2. a daughter of a friend of the wife
Beatrice Harnois plays the niece, friend's daughter and she is quite an actress.
One feels as if one is, indeed, peeking into the lives of a couple and their guest.
The delicious Mary Mendum, credited as "Rebecca Brooke," is sultry, stunning, and VERY hot playing the wife whose mind is played with by the Harnois character.
Jean Roche, PAUL, is exceptionally good and outshines many of the more highly regarded "straight" actors whether here(US) or Europe.
This is about a young woman who effectively controls a husband and wife.
Creating some real havoc and conflict along the way.
There is a happy resolution, at least to my view and overall a very erotic film.
As with so many of the early European pornos or erotiques there is genuine character development and storyline.
I might add that what the American distributors often do to these classics is butcher them. For what possible reason I cannot fathom.
America needs to liberate the artistic portrayal of sexuality and sensuality.
If you can find this film it is definitely worth viewing.
