Modern update of the popular Alexandre Dumas story but with lots of boobs and bare asses thrown in.  is gorgeous as the woman of questionable morals who captures the eye of a handsome Italian aristocrat () and seems likely to make him her latest victim.  He falls beyond lust and into love with her, not minding that the life she lives is that of the kept woman of an unseen wealthy benefactor, hoping to make a genuine union of their time together.  She is eventually turned to affection for him as well, but that is ruined when his father shows up and tells her that for the young man’s sake she must drop him.  And then she coughs, and we all know where this is going.  Surprisingly not nearly as boring as it should be considering the random excuses for endless, motionless sex and kinky orgy parties, this one is delightful viewing for the super-hip clothing and furniture and for the appeal of its stars.  Don’t mistake it for anything other than trash, but you won’t necessarily hate yourself for watching it either.
