Review: cross between a spaghetti western and a bondage flic Fabulous pink that defies adequate description. Everything that has been written is accurate but you will still be surprised by this astonishingly individual film. At once, sordid, sexy and sentimental, it plays like a cross between a spaghetti western and a bondage flic. From the first frames we are thrust into the ‘pleasure dungeon’ and confronted with the explicitly demonstrated options and are then thrown by the considerable gay elements, both female and male. Indeed although partly, like most of this, played with comic intent, the romantic interlude between the two guys is pretty eye popping, coming in the midst of all this sex and sadism. Something for everybody here, except of course those who get their delights exclusively from mainstream cinema. Did I mention the fantastic bondage scenes and the nazi regalia? Must see.
