In a photographer's studio, Sara (Pia Andersson), a talent agent past her prime, picks up pretty and innocent looking Tulia (Vivian Neves) and invites her to her country home, where she's pose for her photographer nephew Theo (Karl Lanchbury) - and at first everything goes very fine, and the three of them even party together in the evening quite nicely, a party that involves alcohol, tinged cigarettes, and even a round of strip poker. And eventually, Tulia and Theo become very friendly ... but when it comes to sex, Theo just can't keep it up. The day after, Tulia becomes a little more inquiring, wondering about the last model Sara and Theo had at their place, Rhonda (Johanna Hegger), about whom they keep on talking without ever explaining why she left all of a sudden. Tulia also meets Theo's friend Tom (Andrew Grant), who almost rapes her in front of Theo's camera, and she's told way too late that it was only for Theo's photos. Later Sara tells her that his erectile disfunction has to do with his voyeuristic urges. That night, after quite a few drinks and tinged cigarettes, Theo photographs Tulia and Sara having lesbian sex, and the two women somehow manage to seduce him, too. The next morning, Tulia finds the keys to Theo's photo lab, the only room she isn't allowed into, and decides to take a peek. She finds photos of Rhonda not meant for her eyes, and what she sees isn't pretty. But doing so, she's caught by Theo - and he's quite enraged, and armed ...

 

Whirlpool might be one of the lesser-known films by José Ramón Larraz, but it's well worth a look all the same, as the film presents us with a slightly labyrinthean story caught somewhere between psycho thriller and erotica, told in a very sensual way - which goes not only for the sex scenes - with plenty of nudity that never seems gratuitous but always grounded in the plot ... and that's despite the fact that the plot only gradually unfolds and unveils where it's headed - making this a very fascinating trip, and also an awesome piece of nostalgia, because films like this aren't made anymore in this day and age, which is why this one looks fresh to this day!
