3.0 out of 5 stars Love is not for you Marianne 25 Jun 2009
By All of them Witches TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
A fun and entertaining early 1970's outing of greed, dysfunction and betrayal. Directed by Pete Walker who up until this point had been known for churning out a series of sex comedies. This is a far more subtle and erotic affair with the delectable Susan George at her pouty best.
A very good exercise in character exploration, great direction, juxtapositon of imagery, occasional split scenes showing two events simultaneously, good dialogue and acting.
The story is set partly in England and partly in the Algarve and revolves around Marianne's forthcoming inheritance by her late mother of a safety deposit box which contains lots of cash and some incriminating documents which could spell the end for her corrupt retired judge father as well as other members of the judiciary, other public figures etc. Marianne's family are not best pleased with this state of affairs and with the assistance of others conspire to remedy this situation.
This film is not Pete Walkers best effort but shows promise of things to come which were fulfilled in some of his later horrors. It does drag a bit in places but the whole 70's vibrancy, great music, a stunning and provocative opening sequence and the alluring Susan George keep the interest levels up.
Given the implied decadence of Marianne's Portugal based family and Pete Walkers history it was a bit of a shame perhaps that there wasn't a bit more of the old sexual exploits going on which could have offered interest and reinforcement of the general aire of dysfunctionality which was prevalent, especially with them having the delightful Susan George at the helm.
A good enough film that has stood the test of time well; I hadn't seen this for 20 years and it's made me look forward to seeing Pete Walkers horror classics again.

Another fabulous movie from the great Susan George cinema era!

George is a Go-Go Dancer, and the daughter of a corrupt Judge. Her mother's dead, and George's character, 'Marianne' holds the key to a Safe containing money and papers that would destroy her father. Deciding to marry in a hurry, she ends up getting hitched to the wrong guy by mistake.

A complicated plot this, involving a wicked step-sister (who it is suggested has an incestuous relationship with her own father) who outdoes the most evil step mother of any fairytale! She's out for Marianne's blood - in more ways than one!

A sizzling story set for the main part in Portugal which also stars the late Barry Evans.

This movie has some great cinematic shots, including an opening sequence showing Susan George doing some really cool dancing! A very atmospheric movie with a haunting vocal score to back it up.

N.B. Though listed as 'Region Code 1', this DVD plays fine on my Region 2 only DVD Player.
