Ian Douglas: Mmmm.. I thought this might appeal more to the women, but judging from the foreign ratings, they were not too impressed either. It's hard to say what is wrong with the movie... it has great sets, costumes and music, but there is something about the story that doesn't work. Maybe it is because the heroine comes across as having a voracious appetite for new male conquests, so she ends up looking somewhat slutty. I suppose for her time she was likely as notorious and controversial as Madonna is today.
