BACCHANALES SEXUELLES (1974)
Tout le monde il en a deux
Fly Me the French Way
Schiave del piacere
FRENCH WITH ENGLISH HARDCODED SUBTITLES
A softcore – but pretty explicit and with copious nudity – romp from one of France’s finest directors, Jean Rollin. Hi-q rip from the Synapse full restoration in anamorphic widescreen (thanks to flailer for sourcing the DVD); French language plus embedded English subtitles. Soft focus but very good given its age. I reckon most of these babes are really scorchio – take a look at the Screens & come to your own conclusions…

Valerie, a beautiful young girl, watches over her cousin’s place while he’s away for six months. She spends her first night there reading, playing records and calling her girlfriend Sophie over for some hot lesbian sex! That night, members of a crazed sex cult break in and mistakenly kidnap Sophie. Valerie’s cousin, a member of this cult, has some incriminating photos and the leader wants to ruin his life. Once the kidnapping plot is uncovered, Valerie and Sophie’s horny friend Fred go to the cult’s mansion stronghold to stop all this madness!
Writer/director Jean Rollin departs from his vampire and zombie movies to give us some soft-core porn without too much story. In fact, the most amazing thing about this film was that it had three writers. There was so little dialogue that the script could have been written on the back of an envelope.
But we are not here to see a fancy story, we are here to see Joëlle Coeur (from Schoolgirl Hitchhikers). And we do get to see Coeur – all of her, every inch, nothing left to the imagination, with her girlfriend, with a guy, with the guy and another girl in the tub, covered with jam, covered with soap, Oh My God! And it is not just Coeur we see, but her girlfriend Sophie (Marie-France Morel), the high priestess Malvina (Brigitte De Borghese), Jenny (Agnès Lemercier), and Brigette (Annie Belle). There were many more at the cast party at the end, but they are less important.
If you are looking for some campy fun in the vein of 70s grindhouse action, this is the stylish way the French do it.
