EW's GRADE
C-

Details Release Date: Jan 21, 2003; Movie Rated: R; Genres: Erotic, Foreign Language; With: Daniele Liotti and Pilar Lopez de Ayala

It's not to be confused with the 1995 Chris O'Donnell-Drew Barrymore stinker, though a road trip like theirs might have given this movie a shred of a narrative thread. It's 1496, and dewy Princess Joan of Spain (Lopez de Ayala) is betrothed to long-locked Archduke Philip (Liotti). Breasts heave, skirts lift, and legs splay as Joan falls in indefatigable lust with the archduke, who in turn beds other women and plots to declare his now wife insane so he can rule without sharing power. Too bad the filmmakers preferred gratuitous flesh over filling in story details, but why bother adding substance when you can have another sex scene instead?
