Thereís something about doing it in costume that makes even mediocre sex seem titillating. Seven minutes pass before there is any sex. (Oh, sure in the credits each member of the cast is introduced with the member of another member in his mouth, but that doesnít count.) This gives us time to admire the costumes and the effort that has gone into this period piece. This also, unfortunately, gives us a number of faux pas: One of the dudes dines with his plumed hat on indoors; another shakes hands with a servant. Now an aristocrat might fuck a servant (and often did) but he certainly would nOt shake hands with one as an equal. Finally, we see them drinking red wine with chicken! (Never in France!) At the conclusion of this incongruous meal, two of the party do the Lady & the Tramp spaghetti bit with a banana while the other two use a piece of chicken, but itís not erotic. For that, director Hammerschmitt should have taken his cue from the film Tom Jones, but, hey, this is a cartoon, too. So, OK. Next, two aristos retire to a sitting room and do what the French do best. (Itís sort of like watching Lafayette sucking Alexander Hamilton and sitting on his dick.). The costumes get a bit spattered here. I can just hear the guy who rented them looking at the returns and saying, ďVot iz dis schtain on de schulder?Ē In the following scene, the other two diners are strolling on the lawn. They stop to peer into the dungeon where a beautiful bound youth is being sucked off by another prisoner while the grand inquisitor in his red hood urges them on. The aristocrats decide to get in on the ďtorture(?)Ē and join the inquisition. The aristos suck the prisoners, the prisoners fuck the aristos, the grand inquisitor gets his fair share, and a good time is had by all. The remaining scenes are more or less like the first, with two or more actors wearing some or none of their costumes and fucking on sofas, tables, etc.
I wish as much care had been taken with the music as with the costumes. The music sucks! Pachabelís Canon and Beethovenís Fur Elise on a synthesizer. YUCK! But thatĎs easily remedied by turning the sound off.
This film canít hold a candelabra to the Manís Best classic trilogy Fairy Tales (Marchen Knaben) but itís quite fun and would be a unique addition to your collection.
