starring Femi Benussi ˇ Malisa Longo ˇ Herve Hallf ˇ Veronique Coll ˇ Dagmar Lassander ˇ Giacomo Furia


Femi Benussi plays Mirella Boulevard, a sultry math professor, now teaching at a private school in central Italy. Mirella has just relocated to Perugia from a middle school in Rome where her strong Leftist ideology resulted in "political trouble" with authorities. She is rather unorthodox as a mathematics teacher, often combining Greek philosophies with algebraic whole numbers while insisting it - somehow - relates to a better understanding of sex. Mirella even invites students to her home for a casual evening party "to talk about theories of Plato as applied to music." While everyone is sprawled about on the floor, listening to chamber music, some of the students become sexually active. This causes mixed feelings in Mirella as she abruptly stops the party but has secretly become obsessed with student Alain. She begins to justify her carnal feelings for Alain through a distorted concept of feminism. The fantasy becomes reality after Mirella learns another teacher had sex with the young man.

José Bénazéraf was born in Casablanca, Morocco, January 1922. He relocated to France after the flux of the Second World War and became involved in the motion picture business, initially as a writer. He began directing in the early sixties, finding success with arthouse erotica (SEXUS). As cinematic sexual freedom flourished in the early '70s, Benazeraf's films (i.e., FRUSTRATION) became more daring as he pursued kinkier 'taboo' themes. Then, this French/Italian co-production from 1974, marked his first involvement with "harder than soft-core," especially notable in a controversial teacher/student story amid a counterculture Leftist backdrop. The whole thing is very reminiscent of Alberto Cavallone's off-kilter cinema of the '70s (THE MAN, THE WOMAN AND THE BEAST, et al). And, like Cavallone, Jose Benazeraf would soon specialize in exclusively (XXX) hardcore fare. He retired from the industry in 1999 and died December 2012 at age 90.

Femi Benussi made this movie shortly after WHEN LUST IS LOVE. She would become one of Cult Cinema's grandest starlets, appearing in 80+ movies, but is probably best known for BLOODSUCKER LEADS THE DANCE, STRIP NUDE FOR YOUR KILLER and TARZANA. Femi Benusi retired ten years later, in 1984, at age 40.
