Scharbach moved to Italy from Frankfurt Germany at an early age.. In
her late teens, she became a model and then - after meeting director
Frank De Niro (Pasquale Fanetti) - an actress in his odd, quirky, mostly
erotic films. Her popularity landed Petra on the cover (and in the pages)
of Playmen twice in the mid '80s [Playmen was the
Playboy rival in Italy, publishing 30 years, from 1967-2002].
She and Pasquale made numerous films together including Lolita Forever
THE DEVIL TO DINNER.
all of European cinema, there is probably no sleazier film than this.
Here is the story of two college girls who get into one sexual encounter
after another. Petra seems oblivious to the effect she has on men and
often finds herself in a compromising position. On the other hand, her
friend Hula dangerously ignites sexual insanity by baiting a young musician
with dirty phone calls, often resulting in his uncontrolable rape mania.
Plus, as the title suggests... there's also an Invisible Man who sexually
forces himself on Petra at one point in the film.
Pasquale Fanetti (better known by his Frank De Niro pseudonym) is the
king of Italian sexplitation (also see GAMES OF DESIRE, SCENT OF PASSION
and LOVES OF LADY CHATTERLEY). He has the shameless ability to linger
over each scene with a leering intensity unparalleled in erotic cinema.
Unfortunately, many of his films have fallen out of circulation due
to shoddy distribution. For his more depraved projects, like this one,
Fanetti would use the pseudonyms Dudy Steel or Hard Sacc. He retired
from the film business in 1996.
would earlier star in EROTIC
GAMES (1988) with Hula. She left the industry ten years later
in 1999. Today Ms Petra Scharbach paints pictures using her body as
a brush. Her first exhibition was held in Parma Italy in December 2004.
She has since traveled across Europe and Asia with her artwork.
