    This is a really bad european movie trying to copy the formula that worked for the Adrian Lyne film "91/2 weeks" (1986), including a touch of SM as an erotic turn on. A young James Russo does a lame Mickey Rourke imitation including the perennial unshaved appearance. Here the main characters get sexual excitement from slapping each other as foreplay and subsequently from Russo using the belt (la cintura in italian) to whip her prior to sex. There is the plagiarized scene in the dark alley, under the rain, with the characters making love standing and wet. However, there is very little chemistry between Russo and Elidora Bagliadori (attractive woman but with a sexuality that never gets close to that of Kim Bassinger).

    The movie has a boring subplot of Russo describing all what happened between them to a female judge in a court of law. The version I saw is dubbed and that makes it even worse, specially in the supposedly erotic scenes. This one is even worse than other US-made sequels to the original 91/2 weeks.
