final sequence representing, 'today' was a near perfect 70s erotic gem on its own
21 February 2011 | by christopher-underwoodSee all my reviews

Already aware that the film's premise was that of a bed's view of lusty events upon it through the ages, I groaned when the credits showed separate casts for the separate segments and I envisaged two people getting it together throughout the film in different costumes. How wrong, I was. This is a well constructed and shot film. I got a little confused between the 30s/40s and 50s/60s but who really cares and attention to clothing detail was certainly spot on. Indeed the final sequence representing, 'today' was a near perfect 70s erotic gem on its own, with the long hair, lean bodies and outdoor sex with camera into the sun and traffic circling around. So well and varied was this film shot, making the many couplings so surprisingly different, that it was great to discover afterwards that despite the pseudonym of Michael Alexander being applied the cinematographer here is none other than Fassbinder and Scorsese favourite, Michael Ballhaus. Shame the director didn't manage to have a similar future but hats off to all for this one.
