I haven’t seen one these naughty euro muff flicks for years. Add that I watched it in bed on YouTube with an iPad and headphones, all of which I never do, and this was quite the unique little movie experience. The Alcove, or L'alcova if you want to get into the spirit, is an interesting little tale, chocked with casual racism, lesbian encounters, dubious morals and soft focus shenanigans.
Its also really sleazy, quite graphic at times and the dialogue was absolutely priceless. While Gemser's due date is nearing, the trio of girls are lovely, Al Cliver is a boss and the end is a nice slice of gonzo exploitation.
Not my usual cup of chai but it would be a porky pie to say I didn’t enjoy myself, tucked under the doona, the relaxing saxophone score washing over me, watching that, hopefully factual possibly fictional, tribal licking ceremony.
