Review

Our Score
The best-known porn film in the world? Possibly. It almost certainly is for British audiences, and it went on to make Sylvia Kristel an international star and spawn countless imitations. So is it any good? Well, put it this way, it's light years ahead of the films showcased by Dirk Diggler in Boogie Nights. It's artfully shot by director Just Jaeckin, the Thailand locations are occasionally stunning and Kristel disrobes with some elegance. However, acting is far from her strong suit, and the dialogue and story - about the sexual awakening of a young woman - are pretty banal. Still, if you are going to watch one porn film...

Summary

A French diplomat's beautiful wife is initiated into a world of sophisticated sexual pleasures and takes particular interest in an older and more sexually-experienced lady. Erotic adventure, starring Sylvia Kristel, Alain Cuny and Marika Green.
