This has to be the grandmother of all porn films that attempt to have some semblance of a plot. Gratuitous nudity and sexual activity is rampant. Every scene features a beautiful naked Woman (or Women). It is a soft porn flick that tries to include material to suit everyones taste by implementing a broad variety of erotic activity. There's foot fetish activity, bondage, girl on girl, boy/girl, humiliation, a Dominant Woman, submissive women, self-pleasure, role-playing, S&M, etc... All of this is fairly mild but the film is far too explicit to be counted as a regular theatrical film. I give it a 3.7.

Several of the scenes are forceful and/or cruel and could trigger PTSD symptoms in abuse victims, or distress sensitive individuals. Steer clear or tread lightly if this is you! Of course this isn't a film for family night! It is suitable for open-minded persons age 17 and older to enjoy alone or with friends or a partner. Like most pornographic films the acting is sub-par. It's laughable but not the worst I've seen in other Euro-trash sexploitation films. Dialogue is almost nil and there is no character that with whom to relate to or admire (aside from their lovely aesthetic attributes).

"Histoire D' O" of 1975 s a better example of practical storytelling and believable performances. I recommend it over this film. "Histoire..." is the tale that strongly inspired the "50 shades" franchise. In fact, "50 shades" is close to a blatant rip-off and isn't deserving of popular praise. I digress.

The island filming location is quite unique and visually impressive. It's isolated, and the tucked-away beaches and drastic mountain peaks are both romantic and severe at the same time. It's the ideal locale for the movies half-cocked attempt at a plot by reflecting the storyline via landscape.

Not surprisingly, there are way more bushes inside the prison complex than in the landscape...haha! Grooming ones' downstairs region wasn't fashionable until the early to mid 90's. A few of the women didn't think it necessary to shave under their arms either. A couple of the men (guards) are also quite hairy. Back hair and thick full bushes...yuck. By god, why were people so adverse to smooth skin during those decades?! You'll likely find it funny and/or icky as did I.

Europeans (and the Japanese) have always been bolder than other nations at expressing their sexuality and especially peculiar activities. Their non-nonchalant attitude towards nudity and unusual "love-making" activities has always been the envy or bane of more conservative countries. I imagine that the more expressive nations have no qualms about labeling "Caged Women" as a regular theatrical production. The rest of the world either has the film banned or presented clandestinely to niche audiences.

This movie is amusing without intending to be. I think it could be re-worked and tweaked to make a great comedy-thriller for adults. I hope a talented director see's this ridiculous film and reaches the same conclusion.
