3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyably sexy, but tedious plot. 24 Sep 2007
By Jason Mills VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is an odd movie. I'm not sure whether the director wanted to make a
soft porn movie but was forced to couch it as a thriller, or whether he
had his sights set on a top-notch political intrigue and had to sell it
with sex. In any case, the titillation aspect of the enterprise is by
far the most successful.

Madame Claude hires out 'high-class' prostitutes to businessmen and
politicians. Some of the women hang out with a photographer, who obtains
compromising photos, and around these pictures is assembled an
impenetrable plot involving countless factions of nondescript
middle-aged Frenchmen. There's a pleasing glamour and style to the sex
scenes, as you'd expect from the director of "Emmanuele", but the
narrative is deeply uninteresting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb on asll counts 23 Jan 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Gainsbourg soundtrack, phsycotic Klaus Kinski, incredibly stunning actresses - what more could you ask for.

Storyline ok - Highlife of the early 70's - makes the world we live in look rather benign.

Quality good of film good - a hidden gem.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just Jaeckin? 2 April 2011
By e5150 - Published on Amazon.com

Is that the director's name or occupation? Could be both in this film, as far as I can tell. I've been looking for this film for years under the name it used when I first saw it on late-night cable decades ago, "The French Woman". It was, shall we say, integral in propelling me into puberty and has a certain sentimental value to me. You can imagine my annoyance when I found that it has been available for quite some time under what I assume is it's proper name.
It's better than your run of the mill modern erotica in the sense that it tries to be clever in posing as a "political thriller" of sorts. The director is actually fairly good at skin flicks--more interesting than Jean Rollin or Jess Franco--and makes a film that almost doesn't seem like you're watching a gratuitous flesh-fest.
The dvd quality is pretty bad and looks like a vhs was used, but that's not a new development in this type of genre and time-frame. But overall it's Just Jaeckin!!

5.0 out of 5 stars High Class, High-Priced, and High-Rollin' 2 Oct 2012
By citan-uzuki - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The central character is Madame Claude, the proprietress of a business that provides escort services to wealthy men. High class, high-priced, and high rollin' best describes Madame Claude's employees. Obviously, there's more going on here than just beautiful young women talking to rich men, flattering their egos. Although there is much of that too. Claude's girls provide complete service. Given the clientele, practicing discretion and delicacy are both important for the business.

In life, when you have a great thing going, someone always comes along who wants to rain on your parade, be a fly in the ointment. And in the movie, that someone is a photographer named David Evans. David is a barely-employed photographer who hangs out at the same night clubs that some of Claude's girls, and clients, do. He takes it upon himself to collect information about the people that Claude does business with, even to the point of interfering with the girls' work. Unwittingly, David comes to the attention of some very powerful political figures, both in France and the U.S. In other words, powerful married men who would not want their secret passions exposed!

Francois Fabian (Claude) is supported by a good cast: Dayle Haddon, Klaus Kinski, Murray Head, and Robert Webber. You may know Dayle Haddon as a spokesperson for L'Oreal. She was very young here, in this movie. I would guess about 25, with a fabulous bikini body. She plays the role of Elizabeth, the newest addition to Claude's payroll. Klaus Kinski plays the billionaire, Alexander Zakis, who wants to use Elizabeth's services to teach his sensitive son how to be a man. Sergei Gainsbourg composed the soundtrack, with his partner Jane Birkin singing the theme song "Yesterday, yes a day".

If you like movies with a Euuropean flavor, nice soundtrack, beautiful women, then you will enjoy this movie. Klaus Kinski, ofcourse, is the father of actress Nastasja Kinski. And Sergei Gainsbourg is the father of actress Charlotte Gainsbourg. I highly recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars nothing special 9 Dec 2011
By supra99 - Published on Amazon.com

The video is mediocre. There is a little bit of skin but nothing special. It's not anything that you couldn't see anywhere else.
1.0 out of 5 stars Transfer from VHS really lousy. 9 Nov 2013
By aferdman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Transfer from VHS done well before invention of color. My 20 years old VHS have better quality.
The movie itself has minimal of everything--minimal skin, minimal imagination, minimal plot etc.
In the flick about prostitution you expect some action rated x, well, here its PG. Avoid.
