Perfumed Garden

This film purports to be erotic entertainment, but is neither fish nor foul. It is an unnecessarily complicated mediocre story not very well told, and from my point of view, not erotic. It is `chick porn,' thus we see no genitals or intercourse, but spend lots of time on The Relationship. There is brief full (female) frontal nudity, but it is purely incidental. We have to make do with a reasonable helping of bare breasts, but they aren't doing anything either. There is so little of any kind of sex in this film that the invocation of the Kama Sutra is a fraud. By introducing mysterious India, its ancient non-Calvinistic religions and its famous sexual philosophy, this film had great potential as a `classy' erotic film for people with at least a high school education, but it never developed into anything.
