Anna


I watched Secrets of a Call Girl starring the ever-amazing Edwige Fenech. The U.S. title is actually awful. The movie was supposed to be called Anna, although the European distributor added "That Particular Pleasure" as a subtitle, which makes even less sense than "Secrets of a Call Girl".

It's an interesting little exploitation drama. It apparently was developed as a chance for Ms. Fenech to do some real acting and it definitely was a good one. The story is jumpy. The events are occasionally confusing... or at least spotty in terms of logical sense. It's the kind of movie that could probably only have been made in Europe.

I'm honestly not sure whether to recommend it or not. It's certainly well-made, apparently even the great Sergio Leone said so, quite compelling and nicely acted. It's hard to come up with a reason not to recommend it.
