Billed as a Video-Film, nobody could convince Lasse Braun to make a video look like a video. His one concession seems to be in the way he ends a scene. Instead of using the traditional long-shots that add production value to his big-budget films, he chooses to free frame with video-trickery to segue to the next encounter.
George Payne and Paula Meadows play a married couple who are going through the 'itch period.' She wants two Texans at once, and gets them. He wants something, but won't admit what it is. After she gets what she wants, she pushes him off on Siobhan Hunter. Later, he tells his wife that he didn't do her. We're not sure what happened though because when asked, we are taken into his consciousness where he bones the hell out of her. Is he lying or fantasizing? If he is lying, this scene works. If he was only fantasizing—well. The biggest problem technically is that there seems to be an abundance of orangey-blue light. Since I haven't been in New York for over a year, maybe that's the way the place looks now.
With a little more time and a lot more money, this could have been a blockbuster. However, it still scores on sexuality. Lasse knows how to make a sex scene look spontaneous, with every touch and caress highlighted instead of exploited.
