To hide the raunch of Delta of Venus in a pretty package, there's lots of telephoto, foggy-lens photography.
The cast is attractive and capable. Audie England, who stars as Elena, a character based somewhat on Nin, looks like a young Michael York with long hair and a plump lower lip.
In the story, Elena is an American living in Paris with lots of artists in 1939. Out of work, she begins writing erotica for a mysterious benefactor who pays by the page. Too make her writing more realistic, she tries different sexual relations, which get increasingly, well, nontraditional.
