    In the land of soft-focused 70s erotica, David Hamilton reigns supreme. This is a well-told coming-of-age sexual awakening story featuring lovely cinematography and a cohesive narrative (which is more than 95% of its cinematic peers can claim). It does wander a bit into pure titillation at times, especially during the early part of the film. But if you’re interested in exploring erotic films of this time period, this is about as cinematic an example as you’re going to find.Read More »

  • David Hamilton – Laura, les ombres de l’été AKA Laura, Shadows of a Summer (1979)


    Amazon review:
    This movie is about a sculptor who loves “making” statues and paintings of young nudes. He becomes obsessed with the daughter (Laura) of a friend, whom he knew a long time ago. He manages to get her mother to take pictures of her for him to use in making a sculpture of her body. Laura develops a crush on him (as did her mother) and after he is blinded, offers to help him finish the statue that he started by posing for him herself. He’s able to finish the clay sculpture by using his hands to feel along her body. They both get caught up in the moment and she becomes a women.

    Those who argue about the plot or dialogue have missed the point of a David Hamilton movie. They simply don’t get it. At any rate, there are a few story plots intertwined in this movie if you can pick them out.
