Jesús Franco - El hotel de los ligues (1983)
Three couples meet in an elegant Costa del Sol hotel. They are from various social classes and are gathered here for totally different reasons. One couple has met through a matrimonial agency. Another is composed of a fashion designer and his wife who are on the verge of seperation because of the husband's homosexuality and are here because the wife hopes to recover her husband's desire. The third couple is a German VIP, Ilsa, and her Gypsy gigolo who sells his charms for a few dollars. They are all going to be strongly attracted by Eva Bombon, a cabaret dancer, who came there to seek calm and solitude to prepare her next show. Her exuberant beauty is going to set their senses on fire and end their conflicts... very cordially!
An almost exact remake of Elles Font Tout (1978) using extracts of scores from the 1974-75 period.
