Simply Delightful... Australia's "Horny Little Rabbit" goes

"A rare delight. A joy to watch. 16-year old cutie, Felicity (Glory Annen), is in an all-girls boarding school in Australia. For vacation, her Dad sends her a plane ticket to Hong Kong. What fun for a naughty girl whose favourite reading includes "Story of O" and "Emmannuel". This is one of the finest soft-core Erotica to come along since the original Emmannuel. It has red hot cuties, good acting talent, high production values, lovely photography and scenery, and is both exotic and erotic. It is also one of the rare examples of Erotica from Down Under.
In Hong Kong, Felicity gets introduced to a local girl, Me Ling. Me Ling (Joni Flynn) doesn't look in the least bit Chinese. But who cares? She's HOT! Me Ling brings Felicity to places most tourists don't see, like Lesbian Bath Houses and Waterfront Floating Brothels. It's in one of the Floating Brothels, while peeping at customers making out, that Felicity gets poked in the rear by a complete stranger, and discovers that she really enjoys it. Although nothing explicit is shown, it is still very hot. Felicity falls for an Aussie photojournalist, Miles (Christopher Milne), and learns by film's end the important lesson that sex with love is more important than simply sex alone. So the "horny little rabbit" (Miles' name for her) settles down with her lucky bloke and lives happily ever after. Absolutely delightful and worth every dollar.
Sadly the DVD from Severin is not up to scratch. The film is presented in its original 1.85:1 widescreen (anamorphic). But the print looks old. Although Severin claims to have restored it, colours are very faded and there are scattered nicks and dirt specks. There is grain throughout. Black levels are not properly set. Deep blacks plateau to a dull dark grey making the picture appear flat, lacking depth. The picture is watchable but disappointing, especially when compared to Severin's other releases. The audio is in 2.0 Mono and sounds fine. No subtitles are provided. There is an engaging and informative feature-length commentary from director John D. Lamond and winsome star Glory Annen. Happy as I am to have this DVD, I hope Severin comes round to issuing a Special Edition with the print properly restored and remastered. This delightful film is worth the cost.
Note: Glory Annen is actually Canadian but manages what she calls a "cultured" Australian accent. Joni Flynn is British of Scottish-Indian ancestry and a former Penthouse model. Her most widely seen role is in the 007 film "Octopussy". I love Felicty's breezy theme song, "Mama's Little Girl". Sung by Linda George, it brings back nostalgic memories of the 1970s. This film was shot in 1978 and as Lamond says in the commentary, it remains a fascinating time-capsule of when Hong Kong was still a British Crown Colony. The film is as much an exotic travelogue as an erotic feature. For all you pervs out there, be aware that this film was passed uncut by the usually puritanical British and Australian censors. It was considered "artistic" and "tasteful" so don't expect raunchy porn. If anything, this film would be best described as innocent and light-hearted entertainment. This new "unrated, uncensored director's cut" would get a mild R-rating at most."
The Severin release is a new, totally uncensored DVD!

"The film is as amazing as the people below have described. Pound for pound, scene for scene, undoubtedly the hottest Skinemax movie ever made.
The gentleman below says to avoid the DVD. He was wise to. Because he's referring to an earlier, edited release and NOT the Severin release - a brand new transfer of the Director's Cut, restored in all of its unrestrained Glory (Annen, that is)."
Great Erotic Cinema!

"Ok, the movie is flawed. With not much of a plot. But the film has one purpose: to be erotic. And it is. Glory Annen is a goddess! She's sweet, innocent, sexy, and utterly [appealing] in every way, shape and form. And she's a fine actress. She's the girlfriend you always wish you had. Who'd be up for ANYTHING seuxally. She's gorgeous and oddly enough resembles a young Judy Garland in many ways.The story is about a young Australian nymph who has her sexual awakening in the mysterious Orient. The main problem is that the movie isn't explicit enough. It's only soft core. Which is a bummer. The female on female love scenes are to die for.But you'll fall in love and lust with Glory Annen after seeing Felicity. She's the perfect woman. Dare I say it? Glory Annen is the king of all women! Long live the lovely Ms. Annen! And to hell with every frigid uptight sexually repressed shrew you ever had to waste your time with!The movie is so free, so sexual and so 70's! It's the swinging Seventies, baby! Long live the era of free love! Long live Glory Annen! Rock on!!!"

"The new DVD of the hottest film of all time is a completely remastered, authorized special edition. It looks and sounds great and has an audio commentary with director John Lamond and Felicity herself, Glory Annen. The guys review a few down is talking about an old bootleg dvd so ignore it and don't let it spoil your enjoyment of this amazingly-delivered official package. [...]AWESOME!!
