This is definitely one only for the collector or completists. The storyline is not very taxing and the overall feeling I get from the film is a 'low budget' vehicle to launch an attractive and young aspiring actress to greater things. There's nothing wrong with that, but please bear this in mind if you want to be 'gripped' in entertainment - for this film will fail to deliver on that account. This having been said, one can see the alure that a young Ms Bo had, and was good practise for husband John Derek, so it's not surprising that she shot to fame with later projects and was perfect for the role in "10". It's okay...but that's about all!

I was with some hesitation that I approached Fantasies. Although seeing a young Bo Derek, before she was Bo Derek, always is a treat I was still hestitant that this wouldn't be much more than your typical 70s sleazepoitation picture. But instead it turned out to be a story of a young girl turning into a woman, a tale of emancipation from a society bent on limiting her. A love story like all other love stories. And while the atmosphere is very much 70s in a for today's standard annoying way there is some qualities to this movie if you look beyond that. Maybe not the grandest of movies to have been done but if you like me find Bo Derek worth spending time with then this will be a worthy 90mins.

This was Bo Derek's first movie, filmed some time in the mid-1970s, but released after her success with "10". It's interesting for Bo Derek fans to see a young, dark haired Bo Derek. And she's charming as always. But there's really no other reason to see the movie. There's hardly any plot, so the movie gets dull pretty fast.

"Fantasies" is for Bo Derek completists only.

Bo Derek's charming film debut! 21 Oct. 2004
By Marty Martinez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Bo Derek was only 16 when she starred in this beautifully photographed "coming-of-age" film. As with most of her films, the backstory is more fascinating than the actual movie: A pretty young model (named Cathy Collins) is whisked away to the panoramic Greek island of Mykonos to star in a romantic idependent film. She falls in love with director John Derek, a handsome, married, former matinee idol who is 30 years older than her. He eventually marries her and transforms her into the first screen sex goddess of the 1980's. This film showcases Bo's young beauty as Anastasia, the rebellious Greek orphan who lives most of her life like the literary character Walter Mitty, in a complete fantasy world (hence the title). She sails around with her older "brother" Damir, played by Peter Hooten, looking for the opportunity to open a resort on the small island where they live. As they discover that they're not really brother and sister, a strange, uneasy love begins to blossom. This is a lovely, sincere film with an odd element of reality slipping in some scenes (note the older photographer who visits the island and creates a 70's fashion photo montage with Bo! The photographer even tells her,"One day, the whole world will want to take your picture!" He got that right!) There is some incidental nudity, but nothing too extensive like in her later films. This is one of those innocent, sappy movies that helps everyone to fantasize that sometimes, love really does conquer all...
A lack of fantasy 9 Jan. 2015

I have always enjoyed watching Bo Derek (along with most of the male population, I suspect). This however I cannot recommend. It is just about the worst peace of junk B.D. EVER appeared in. So fans, save your dough for another time.

I can't tell you what this movie was about even thought I did watch it. What I do remember are parts with Bo and that was just fine. Bo knows how to show off her talents.
