This movie fails on every level; it
sets out to be a farce, with one actor playing both the actor and her abestor.
Using wigs and changing clothes, each pretends to be the other, with ... disappointing
results. Trouble is, it's so slow - you can see what's happening long before it
hits you. the script is poor, or maybe the translation. And the dubbing is fairly
dire, with the voice actors competing with the real ones for uselessness.
Duchess/Actor stands out, however; Pia Degermark shines head and shoulders above
the rest; but she really doesn't understand sex appeal - or maybe her husband
(the director) inhibited her.
A few funny moments, but any semblance of
plot had fallen away after the halfway mark, with the most boring orgy I've ever
seen, eventually winding down to a silly ending.
