of Internet misinformation surrounds this rare film from Erwin Dietrich.
The Internet Movie Data Base insultingly describes it only as "Sexual
encounters accompanied by music playing on the radio." This
is very far from the truth. In reality, here is a cautionary story of
three young people whose carefree (dangerous) lives clash as they struggle
with romance and sex on an island off the coast of Greece. First, there's
Viviane who sexually toys with naive Steven as she plans to seduce the
village lawyer and destroy his marriage. Her mixed messages to Steven
cause him to react violently towards her, resulting in tragedy. Meanwhile
his brother Robert has begun a hopeless relationship with an older TV
journalist (played by Ajita Wilson).
C. Dietrich is best known as Jess Franco's producer but he also helmed
a number of his own films, usually for Eurocine Studios. His movies
tend to be short-on-plot and heavy on nudity (GIRLS
WITHOUT MEN and GROUPIE),
while many (DANCING
GIRLS FOR TANGIER and WHITE
SLAVERS) also rely on sadism and sexual brutality. He is probably
best known for the Lina Romay film ROLLS
[as a director] and MAD
FOXES [as a producer]. Mr Dietrich died from a stroke in March
2018 at age 87.
Italian film with optional ON/OFF English subtitles; fullscreen, 80 minutes;
