Madame Villeblanche (Lina Romay) runs a nightclub/whorehouse which employs exclusively lesbians with shaved pussies, because otherwise her girls could fall in love with the clients. At one point, one of her girls falls in love with Antonio ... and she has him tortured by the other girls, up to a point where even Anna is turned on and joins in, and then she has him castrated. And when that procedure is over, she has Anna tortured as well. By and large, she likes her girls torturing and castrating men and even eating their penisses and ... the end.

 

I'm not sure about this film: On one hand, it's nice to see that director Jess Franco, a man well into his seventies, is still making his brand of films, weird and dirt-cheap blends of sleaze and art-cinema, trash and avant garde, held together by his very own cinematic language consisting of weird camera angles and a succession of extreme close-ups as only he dares to do it. On the other hand though, the film is seriously lacking on several accounts: There simply is no story to speak of, let alone characters or character development, the sex scenes are way too extended so they quickly become boring, and they seem too choreographed to really be exciting, and by and large (apart from a scene at the beginning when Lina and Rachel Sheppard try to have sex but are repeatedly interrupted by peolpe phoning in), the film seriously lacks humour, something Franco was never afraid of in earlier films.

In a nutshell, Perversion is by no means Jess Franco's worst film, but it's also not one of his better ones. Let's just hope he will go filming on and on and on and before long produce another masterpiece - which he certainly seems to be capable of doing ...
