Allow me to offer a bit of backstory. A few years ago, I purchased a large cardboard box full of genre DVDs on eBay. Now, this was a large lot, and with a couple of 50-movie collections, there are close to 150 movies in all, if not more. These discs stay out of my collection proper because, well, they just aren't very good, and I'll likely get rid of most of them. I'm not even talking low budget, many of these are no budget, talentless affairs produced by individuals who slept through even their most elementary film classes. They struggle to achieve comprehensive narrative, clearly audible dialogue, or competent lighting. Yet, I am going to sit through every last one of them before passing them on to someone else.
Well, the other night I popped in a movie called Blind Target. The director of this feature is Jess Franco, the many-pseudonymed Spanish filmmaker who specializes in erotic exploitation. He was at the helm of one of the classics of the genre, Vampyros Lesbos (1971), starring one of the most beautiful women to ever walk the Earth, Soledad Miranda. When I saw Franco's name on the cover of this DVD, I was confused, since it didn't seem like his type of faire.
About twenty minutes in, however, something finally starts to happen. The lead actress seduces/is seduced by another female actor on a seaside balcony. Things start to get hot and heavy, and clothes start coming off (of one of them). The erotic drama proceeds from there, still out on the balcony. You know the point where a movie love scene gets so passionate that the aggressor just takes his or her partner and pins them against a wall? Well, in this case it was a closed sliding door. Look for yourself.
