User Review

One woman's desires

Rating: 7/10

This early (1990) major feature from Bigas Luna is the one which – not
surprisingly – got him noticed.
It is an uncompromising study of sexuality, exploring desires which most
directors would shy away from – on and probably off the
camera.
Italian actress Francesca Neri plays the lead character. It's an erotic,
uninhibited performance, taking Lulu from an innocent virgin with a crush
on
her brother's friend to a woman so desperate for carnal gratification that
she trawls bars looking for men with which to have three-way
sex.
For some, the film's frankness – masturbation, homosexual sex and
cunnilingus – and exploration of everything from transsexual sex to incest
might bring it close to pornography.
But it is refreshing to see these challenging areas of sex dealt with by a
competent director and good cast of actors.
It hints at the themes which would run through Luna's later work, such as
Jamon, Jamon and Golden Balls but without the quirky humour of those
films.
Slightly exhausting, perhaps taking on too much of the dark side of
sexuality.
