Looking for recommendations for fun, campy, European softcore sex romps from the late 60s or early 70s -- in the vein of Barbarella, Danger: Diabolik, or Radley Metzger. Bonus points for instant streaming on Netflix.
My wife and I enjoyed the amazing Viva
-- a knowing simulacra of a particular kind of dramatic, sexy film from the late 60s or early 70s -- a while back. Same with sexy camp classics like Barbarella or the later Flash Gordon
. We happened across Dagmar's Hot Pants, Inc.
the other night browsing Netflix instant streaming, and found the whole early-70s sexy chic to be quite enjoyable -- even if the movie neither had a coherent script or any actual mention of hot pants whatsoever. Radley Metzger
's earlier films tend to run up into this kind of space, but they're not quite as fun as the campier films mentioned above.
We're not interested in the post-Deep Throat X-rated hardcore scene, and the American sexploitation scene typified by Russ Meyer isn't quite what we're looking for -- although a particular kind of funny, campy American film would be OK. Similarly, something like I Am Curious (Yellow)
(or Blue) is certainly an interesting film from the appropriate era, but not quite the campy, sexy romp we're looking for.
