Quand j'étais adolescente, je me cachais pour écouter ce film avec une amie. J'adorais ce film! Cela faisait des années que j'essayais de le retracer... Je suis très contente de l'avoir acheté. Mais il est vrai que le jeu des acteurs laisse à désirer... Je l'ai écouté en français et c'est exactement la même chose que dans mon enfance. J'aime beaucoup la sensualité des acteurs. Mais il ne faut pas s'attendre à du XXX. Nous ne voyons que des seins. Mais c'est correct. On peut laisser cour à notre imagination...

This review seeks to balance the rating a bit. The only reason to watch this movie is to see a young Tawny Kitaen in all her glory. But I would say that is more than reason enough!

FINALLY!! Oct. 31 2006
By D. Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I have been wanting to pick up this obscure movie for years, ever since I first watched it some 12 years ago. Unfortunately, up until now it has been out of print - even on VHS. I was un-willing to pay an obnoxious price for a used version on Video tape. Now there is no reason to fret any more: Gwendoline is here & she's on DVD!!!

The original title of the film was The Perils of Gwendoline in the Land of the Yik Yak. It is basically a low-budget INDIANA JONES type of adventure movie, only with a whole lot more erotica mixed in. One could say there are elements of Monty Python as well. Brent Huff plays a Harrison Ford wannabe. He has a great physique for an adventure movie, but he's not a particularly good actor. The third major character is Gwendoline's sidekick / friend, Beth (played by French actress Zabou).

The overwhelming reason to buy this DVD may be summed up in 3 words: Tawny Kitaen topless! While she has stripped down in a few other movies (such as WITCHBOARD), one needs to have the pause button on the DVD remote handy to get a good look. Not so with this film. She is topless throughout most of the 2nd half of the film - and that's a very good thing!!!

I can't for the life of me understand why Tawny has not had a more robust acting career or why she didn't make many more movies. For one thing, there have not been too many female redhead movie stars. Tawny is gorgeous and there are a few scenes in this film where she is absolutely ravishing - to the extent that she took my breath away. She is also a better actress than a great many women in Hollywood.

To be sure, this is a very corny movie. Tawny and Zabou are good actors; the rest of the cast are all a bit stilted. I believe it was originally in French as the people all suffer from dubbing-man's disease. However, it is also a very fun movie, and I had forgotten just how cute Zabou is.

So, if you are even a remote fan of Tawny Kitaen you need to JUMP at the opportunity to buy this one. It's a feel good movie and Tawny is the one who will making you feel good!

Soft core? March 12 2007
By wiredweird - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Not just soft. It's flaccid, floppy, and limp. It's silly, fun, and adventurous, but it's still pretty limp.

What's to like? A lot, really. This comes down to us from a time when a B-cup was a god-given gift of beauty and a joy to behold, rather than an unhappy accident to be repaired with implants. It's filled with silliness. "We need water - quick, take your shirt off!" And best, the silliness just gets better as it goes along. Watch the costumes on The Grand Dames of Whatever - the colors get brighter, the poufs get poufier, and the haircuts get closer to one of the worse "Dune" movies.

Babes, bods, bouncing boobies, and bravado. There's a lot to like. Nothing that matters, but a lot anyway.

Gwendoline - Unrated Director's Cut Nov. 30 2006
By Michael S. Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Gwendoline - Unrated Director's Cut ~ Known as the TV movie "The Perils

Of Gwendoline In The Land Of The Yik Yak". However, this version has

all the semi-nude scenes intact. Including the picture perfect topless

Tawny Kitaen & 'French sex kitten' Zabou, in the rain. Also starring

Brent Huff as the 'I don't want to be a hero' hero of the story.

Produced by Jean-Claude Fleury. Directed by Just Jaeckin ( Emmanuelle &

The Story Of O [ Soft-porn, not my type ] ). DVD includes Tawny Kitaen

photo spread for French "LUI" Magazine. This is a must have for cult

movie fans, and will join my collection, between "Barbarella Queen Of

The Galaxy ( Jane fonda 1968 )" & "Teenage Catgirls In Heat (

Esmeralda Huffhines, Helen Griffiths, Dorothy Layne 1999 )".

Gwendoline Hot and Fun Nov. 9 2006
By M. Noon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Gwendoline is free spirited and lots of beauiful skin adventure and action.

Good choice of entertainment.They need to bring back a lot of these type

movies with lots of skin and G-rated action. Nudity mades these films very special..

If you liked Sheena or Beast Master this is a good choice.

not a very good movie but the DVD transfer is really good (Director's Cut) May 16 2010
By T. Scarillo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I had never seen "Gwendoline" (or, "Perils of Gwendoline in the Land of the Yik Yak", as it was titled in its shorter US version, though the film itself was made by the French director Just Jaeckin, who did an Emmanuelle film, which i'm sure i saw on Showtime back around 1985) prior to watching this uncut version, though most guys might remember it well from the 80's, since it came out around when Tawny Kitaen made a name for herself in "Bachelor Party". Most guys who came of age in the 80's would likely know the film because there's a TON of topless nudity in the second half of it - it's akin to a film like "Barbarella" in that it's derived from a French comic and there's a highly sexual element to it, but to tell the truth, the film/story (about a young woman who is searching for her father & a rare butterfly, and discovers a society of warrior-like women) is really not that good and the acting is pretty uniformly subpar. I'd be curious what was cut from this, that created the edited version, because there's not a whole lot of plot to begin with? I WILL say, however, that this uncut director's cut has a REALLY good transfer (in 2:35:1 widescreen) and the image is very sharp, and this wasn't even a blu-ray. Extras are ok - trailers, commentary, some other ancillary interview footage. I can't imagine anyone would want to watch this more than once, unless you're a devout Tawny fan, but to each his own. I'll give it two stars: one for the excellent transfer/crispness, and one star for the benefit of any who like Tawny and/or gratutitous Skinemax soft-core Euro-nudie films of the 80's.
