The naked Carmen? Well although she is undoubtedly and regularly sans habillees in this film, the production is really "the topless Carmen". Certainly the camera appears to linger on her chest to the exclusion of much else.
Pamela Prati is sultry and sexy as the eponymous anti-heroine. She has marvellous breasts, but if you are looking for a full frontal nudie fest, then this is not going to be your thing. The production of Albert Lopez is sensual rather than sexy. It is assertively not a raincoat/grindhouse type of filmic exercise.
Not really sure which market this was aimed at either. The production values are not bad, but this is not really any more than a synopsis of Bizet's classic with some of the music sampled throughout. Not really arty, not really sexploitation- and why it rated "18" in Germany is lost on me altogether. If you want opera with nudity, I would try "Aria". If you want Bizet, then go for the more conventional approach.
