Calliope, a sex farce, is clearly an exploitative remake of the much more significant and famous film La Ronde. In this film, ten people have a succession of sexual encounters until all of them have given and received "the gift that goes on giving," sexually transmitted diseases. What was considered to be funny and sexy in the age of penicillin would not be considered appropriate in the later age of AIDS.
