The Dirty Seven (1982) -- Forget the 'Official' DVD which is cut. This is the true, fully uncut edition. A very rare Swedish print in English language taken from the Breien Film label distributed Vhs rental tape. La belva dalle calda pelle" (literally: „The Beast With Hot Skin") is a movie which is marketed to the wrong audience, I'm afraid. Writer and director Bruno Fontana clearly had ambitions beyond that of sleaze. In the beginning, we see Sheila (Laura Gemser - not „Emanuelle" here despite the American title) leading one soldier into a trap and kill him. Then she meets 4 of his comrades and sweetly offers to guide them to the border. We don't know which country it is (seemingly African, but actually shot on Cyprus island), who the soldiers fight for or why they are lost. At this point, the movie is an excellent trip into the Heart of Darkness echoing „Apocalypse Now", and it is not far fetched to presume that was an important influence on „La belva dalle calda pelle" which was shot shortly afterwards. The film has it's fair share of nudity, sex and brutal violence. Plus Laura Gemser, and is the best of the bunch when it comes to the 'fake' Emanuelle films. This is the only print worth seeing of this obscure title, and fans of Gemser will love it.
