Synopsis by Robert Firsching

This middle-period effort from prolific cult director Jesus Franco (directing here as "Dave Tough," a jazz drummer he admired) benefits only from the presence of Lina Romay as Juliette. Otherwise, it is an embarrassing paste-up job masquerading as sophisticated Continental erotica. A French-Portuguese co-production, it was later appropriated by Italian hack Aristide Massaccesi (aka "Joe D'Amato") and re-released in a completely different version incorporating footage from Franco's Midnight Party and Shining Sex: La Fille au Sexe Brilliant. The usual zoom-happy close-ups and uninspired grinding ensue. Alain Petit co-stars with Carole Morelli and Ramon Ardid, and the director makes a cameo as (what else?) a voyeur.
