Review by Wayne Malin

Very interesting,

A bisexual couple seduces another couple. That’s about it, but the movie is still fascinating. It was made long before AIDS (and, ironically, one of the actors later died of the disease) so there are no boundaries on what the couples will do and there’s no moralizing on what is right or wrong. That’s the great thing about the movie-it doesn’t judge. I saw this years ago at a film festival and was just astonished. It’s hard to explain WHY I liked it but I did. It dealt with sex roles, male and female sexuality, bisexuality in an uninhibited and fun way.

As for the sex…there’s not much. I saw an uncut version and, to be honest, there wasn’t anything very explicit. The sequence between the women was tame and all the two men engaged in was oral. That’s really about it. In fact when this came out in 1973 it was a bomb. It was X rated but it wasn’t explicit enough for the porno crowd or intelligent enough for the “intellectual” audience. Now it’s being realized for how good it is.

I’d love to see it again and it is out on DVD–but I’ve heard it’s cut. The sex between the guys is (I’ve heard) considerably shortened. Why? The DVD is unrated and it’s made clear it’s an adult film and, as I’ve said, it’s NOT that explicit. So, what’s the problem? Hopefully an uncut version will surface some day.

So, if you can find it UNCUT it’s well worth catching. Highly recommended.
