Product Description

From acclaimed master of erotica Just Jaeckin (EMMANUELLE, STORY OF O, LADY CHATTERLEY'S LOVER) comes GWENDOLINE, one of the most sought-after 'guilty pleasure' movies of all time! Filled to the brim with enough female flesh and fetishistic imagery to satisfy the most demanding of voyeurs, this is one cult fantasy film you definitely won't want to miss! Follow the adventures of the sweet and innocent Gwendoline (Tawny Kitaen of BACHELOR PARTY and those legendary WHITESNAKE music videos) in which she travels as a stowaway to the Far East with her sexy friend Beth (played by French actress and model Zabou) on a mission to track down her father, who has mysteriously disappeared whilst on a mission to find a mythical butterfly. Rescued from a group of lecherous seamen by the hunky adventurer Willard (actor and male model Brent Huff), Gwendoline persuades him to make up their trio and embark on a daring journey to the land of the Yek Yeik, a country ruled by a diabolical dominant Amazon queen and and an army of female fetish-clad Amazonian warriors! There, Gwendoline must defeat the evil queen and prevent Wilard from being forced to spawn a new race of female warriors - and then face certain death. Gwendoline is a bizarre adventure like no other, freely adapted from John Willie's acclaimed erotic comic strip, which fans have been talking about for years.

I have to admit I like this movie a lot and have watched it several times over the years so this DVD was a treat.
To be honest the acting is often well over-the-top (just superb as one character might say), the effects are so-so and the story is only fair but put that together with some brilliant camera work and the re-mastered sound track it somehow seems to gel. And all this for a butterfly.
There is a noticeable lull between the all action first part where lead Brent Huff flexes his muscles against various low-lifes and the last 40 minutes or so when the female leads take the centre stage in some pretty scanty outfits.
There are no household names here, of the two female heroines Tawny Kitaen as Gwendoline starred in several low budget movies like Witchboard but is better remembered for her marriage to David Coverdale and her appearance in several Whitesnake videos. Zabou Breitman is the better actress by far and has a string of films to her name as actor, writer and director and Bernadette Lafont lords it as the overdressed queen.
There are some good set pieces like the horseless chariot race and although the fight scenes are hardly world title bouts they have enough to hold the attention.
The extras are pretty reasonable too, especially the interview with writer/director Just Jaeckin and the photographs for the Lui photoshoot and as this is the "uncut" version there is a list of the original BBFC cuts that are restored here.
All in all a pretty decent package and one I will be watching often.

It was quite a while ago that we purchased a film off of Amazon that was,‭ ‬well sort of about Amazons.‭ ‬It was called‭ "‬Gwendoline‭" ‬and we've wanted to see it ever since seeing the trailer on a rented VHS in the‭ ‬80s,‭ ‬but never thought we would until I accidentally found some clips of it at the side of the You Tube page of one of the videos the Mother Abyss had posted.‭ ‬It's about an American débutante type called Gwendoline and her maid called Beth,‭ ‬who go out to the Far East to find Gwendoline's father when he disappears whilst on an expedition to find a new species of butterfly.‭ ‬They enlist the initially grudging help of a character very similar to Indiana Jones,‭ ‬except he has a sailor's hat instead of the hat Indiana Jones wore,‭ ‬and has a grappling iron instead of a whip.‭ ‬Anyway,‭ ‬they become mixed up with a lost kingdom called the land of the Yik Yaks,‭ ‬where due to living next to a volcano the women have mutated so that their vagina's now contain wasp like stings,‭ ‬with which they can't help fatally stinging their male lovers on the point of orgasm.‭ ‬For this reason the majority of the population are women.‭ ‬And when a man is sent to the land of the Yik Yaks by the neighboring tribes as a sacrifice to appease the volcano,‭ ‬the Yik Yak women compete in a Gladiatrix tournament to the death to prove their worthiness to copulate.‭ ‬Gwendoline has now fallen in love with the Indiana Jones rip-off character,‭ ‬but he gets captured by the Yik Yaks.‭ ‬Gwendoline tries unsuccessfully to rescue him,‭ ‬but in the attempt one of the Gladiatrixes gets killed and Gwendoline assumes her identity.‭ ‬Now the only way Gwendoline can save her suitor is to compete in the games herself and win,‭ ‬so that he gets to have sex with her instead of a stinging Yik Yak woman‭!Read more ›

I saw the trailer for this one about twenty years ago and have been fascinated with the idea of watching it ever since - it was almost like a forbidden gem for a while with its general lack of availability and bumpy BBFC history (they originally demanded quite a few cuts in the 80s, back in the day when they were much more easily offended, and this censored version - released through Embassy video - became the only convenient way to see it in the UK). The trailer paints quite a different picture to what you eventually get to see - the film is kind of an erotic comedy fantasy adventure, and not entirely successful one (depending on perspective obviously). Personally I think the main issue is with the 'comedy' - it's quite juvenile in nature and no funnier than some of those sitcoms aimed at young teens that one happens to unfortunately catch a glimpse of when flicking channels on occasion (i.e. apathy is the primary response, rather than laughter). It does, however, have a few things going for it: there is a sense of epic adventure in there, doused in lots of imaginative touches that push it into the realms of science fiction/fantasy. Tawny Kitaen (probably one her better roles), one-time babe of David Coverdale (the lucky person, him), looks really fetching throughout, and conveys an attractive sense of innocence well, while she's joined by a host of naked and semi-naked females mainly in the latter part of the film. These factors keep things moving along in a moderately entertaining fashion and at a reasonable pace, but it feels as though it should have been better. The humour repeatedly drags things down into the realms of the silly, and the square-jawed hero/Indiana Jones-wannabe was particularly getting on my nerves.Read more ›
