Synopsis by Robert Firsching
This Italian-French co-production is an early attempt at the erotic-thriller genre, but while it contains a great deal of skillfully presented erotica, Salvatore Samperi's film contains little suspense. Florence Guerin and Cyrus Elias star as a troubled couple whose housekeeper, Angela (Katrine Michelsen), breaks through Guerin's stultifying repression with her provocative and dangerous sexuality. Teasing lesbianism, bondage, and pseudo-rape scenes abound, until Guerin breaks through her psychological walls and takes control of Michelsen in the surprisingly well-directed conclusion. Kinky, cold, and slick, Corruption is more about head-games than shocks, but has its interesting moments.
