Storyline

She called him "Souci" - Who could imagine that this angelic face hid a "heroine of evil"? 3 - **** MARIE: The Paris of today also has its "heroines of evil". Marie, the wife of a rich art collector, is kidnapped by a gangster. César the dog, on his own initiative and in secret, decides to find his lover and avenge her.

Another sick movie maker!
27 May 2019 | by RodrigAndrisanSee all my reviews

Personal quote of Walerian Borowczyk: "Eroticism, sex, is one of the most moral parts of life. Eroticism does not kill, exterminate, encourage evil, lead to crime, leads to selfless pleasure." I agree with this thoughts, I agree to make erotic movies but, only if you have something to say, some interesting stories, brilliant captivating scripts. But when you make movies like this "Immoral Women", you are bored with capital B. All three episodes of the film don't say anything, each shows a naked woman, some simulated sex, and that's all. Embarrassing, especially the third episode.
