The will of an eccentric millionaire plainly states that there must be a party on the night of his death. In addition a baby must be born out of wedlock under the sign of Taurus, 9 months and 14 days from the time of his death. If this happens, then the town inherits his millions. If not. They get nothing.
Now, in this little town that is going to be a bit of a problem because all of the prim and proper ladies and gentlemen know nothing of sex. The town council wants the money for themselves so they convince the town hussy to keep it a secret and she will have the child.
Then the news breaks out and all the young ladies want to know how sex works and then the young men get involved and it isn’t long before the entire town is one, huge rutting mess.
Not familiar with Danish erotica, I had no idea what to expect. While there is some hardcore sequences in the film and they are there for no other reason than titillation, I hardly think this could be referred to as a porno. It is a very funny comedy however and a definite joy to watch.
Coming from the American diet of what makes an adult film I was flabbergasted at the stunningly gorgeous women who submit to these onscreen carnal pleasures. Especially from a film made in the seventies. American pornography, for the most part, was much grittier than this polished production.
Transfer And Audio
This film is crystal clear and even though I couldn’t understand a word out of their mouths, the sound transfer sounded immaculate as well. The subtitles seemed comprehensive and were always clear to read.
Not much. Some stills and a trailer.
This was a wonderful introduction to Danish erotica. A lighthearted comedy with a lot of silliness coupled with some of the more erotic, hardcore sequences I had seen in some time. It was a little weird to get used to seeing sex scenes that never follow through to their natural conclusion, but after a while I got the hang of it.
