Carla (played by Russian born actress Yuliya Mayarchuk) lives in Venice and is madly in love with her boyfriend Matteo (Jarno Berardi.) When the film begins, Carla recently arrived in London and is working as a receptionist at a London hotel. The couple plans that Matteo will travel to England where he will join Carla in a short period of time. Implementing this plan, however, becomes problematic - - First, Carla is incredibly beautiful, is easily aroused sexually, and has a penchant for dressing provocatively. The first time we see her, while walking through Hyde Park, she is wearing a see-through skirt, with no underwear -- at her next appearance in public, she wears unbelievably brief short shorts. It is therefore not surprising that nearly everyone she encounters attempts to seduce her. This includes her female real estate agent and the agent's former husband. At first, Carla resists, but ultimately she succumbs. Later, however, she makes clear to the female realtor that she is interested in males, not women.
Meanwhile, back in Venice, Matteo stumbles on evidence which suggests that Carla was unfaithful even before she traveled to London. He argues with Carla during a phone conversation and calls off his trip to London. Then, after reconsidering the matter, he appears unannounced at Carla's flat in London to bring matters to a head. This film examines the question of whether infidelity by a female partner, and then lying about it, can be beneficial to a relationship. I will not reveal the answer here to avoid spoiling your potential enjoyment of the storyline.
But alas, this film is not really about relationships - - it is soft core pornography and is focused on sex. Be aware, however, that this film is about as hard as soft core can go without crossing the line. No actual penetration is visible, but both female and male genitalia are shown throughout the film.
The movie is shot on "film" and the production values are high. It appears to have been filmed on location in both London and Venice. The transfer to DVD and the DVD sound (two channel stereo) are also very good.
Carla spends a very large part of the film wearing little or no clothing and the camera studies her perfect face and body in great detail. There is also a bevy of additional attractive females appearing throughout the film in various stages of undress and totally nude on multiple occasions. As the cover of the DVD case suggests, the director Tinto Brass pays special attention to the female derriere in his camera shots.
Watching Yuliya Mayarchuk (Carla) alone is worth the price of this DVD. Combining this with a credible semblance of a plot, high production values, and wall to wall nudity gives this film a five star rating, in my opinion. My only complaint is that the film is in Italian, with English subtitles, and reading the dialogue, which often proceeds at a fast clip, sometimes makes it difficult to keep up with the visual action. However, this is a DVD and the rewind button is designed to handle this kind of problem.
