Private Lessons (1981)

Sylvia Kristel takes her notoriety as princess of soft-porn in European erotica such as Emmanuelle (1974) for an American makeover in this suggestive fantasy which has teenager Eric Brown being sexually initiated by maid Kristel.

A blackmail scheme is the feeble excuse for a plot, backed by a rather good rock soundtrack, but the dislocated way it’s put together is an indication of the production problems . . . and even Kristel’s passion is a fake – a woman named Judy Helden was the stand-in for the nude scenes.
