It's strange to read all those reviewers complaining about "lack of depth","silly plot","weak story",etc...in this and other T.Brass films.If you are looking for "depth" and "clever plot" - STAY AWAY FROM Tinto Brass movies at all and go to Ingmar Bergman,Luchino Visconti or Alfred Hitchkock (whom I personally like very much too!) instead.But if you want something that is totally different from "clever" erotica ("Emanuelle","Jamon,Jamon" and the like)of Just Jaeckin or Bigas Luna,really stupid flicks of Russ Meyer or perverse S/M escapades of Jess Franco or Walerian Borowczyk,then Brass is the best choice.It is this charm of a teenager's "silly" erotic phantasies and dreams in his best films that are SO ATTRACTIVE.It's a world of pagan love rites,sweet lust,peeping pleasures and secret phantasies, brought by the gifted director to the screen, that is totally devoid of any moral,religious or social conventions.To immerse into this strange,illogical,absurdly naive, but very sweet world sometimes is really a pure joy! No other film-maker does it better than Mr.Brass.AND IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH PORN! Even in the most explicit scenes!
This film,along with "The Key", "The Voyeur", "Miranda", "Paprika", "All Ladies Do It", "Cheeky" is one of his best and enjoyable efforts.Amazing,sweet stuff for a rainy autumn day.
