Now HERE is a fun little fast n’ dirty Jess Franco film I’ve never seen! Je brûle de partout (I’m burning up for you) features disco scenes, kidnapped rich girls, aphrodisiac smoke being pumped into rooms full of women and then…more disco! There is even a little plot twist that has the beautiful Susan Hemingway turning out to be the daughter of the depraved ring leader (who feels bad AFTER stumbling in to his daughter of course), AND we have the awesome Brigitte Lahaie as an evil LORNA as well.
While I couldn’t follow the dialog, only in French, the Franco funk is on show with a Blue Rita-esque (with zero style points) sex gas angle blending in with copious sensual sequences. My favorite Franco dick, Al Pereira, is on the hunt for the kidnapped girl, but I can’t say I liked Jean Ferrere in the role very much. Thankfully it’s limited, but it is there to keep conceptual continuity I guess. First up, here is the opening scene for you to enjoy Not only is it full of groovy disco, but this film has SPOKEN credits, done in a male/female tandem that is just superbly amusing. Talk about saving your pennies! Dig it!
