Amazingly groovy Euro-trash classic from erotic maestro Radley Metzger. Daniele Gaubert stars as Marguerite, a tragically beautiful aristocrat who can’t seem to have fun no matter how much sex she has (don’t you hate it when that happens?).
She falls for the young and promising Armand, but sacrifices her love for him for the sake of his future and reputation. Most of the sex takes place in Marguerite’s stunning white boudoir – ceiling mirrors, chiffon drapes and invisible plastic chairs.
At the film’s end, our heroine is confined to an oxygen tent after her last fatal OD. Visually, the setting is more or less identical.
Featuring a terrific Euro-lounge score by Piero Piccioni, and probably the best psychedelic S&M orgy scene, ever (including aluminium Paco Rabanne dresses and copulation in a giant gold cage!).
The real star of this film is set and costume designer Enrico Sabbatini, whose work makes Austin Powers look like an exercise in restraint.
