“Angels of the Sun” is a true story based on articles originally published in the Brazilian press. The plot concerns a man who is the supplier of a strange crop: young girls. Maria, just twelve years old, is chosen and loaded into the back of the truck with several others. “Purchased” by a wealthy land owner as a “gift” for his virgin son, Maria is quickly indoctrinated into ruthlessness and later finds herself on the way to a notorious brothel in a jungle mining outpost. Kept in line by the violent owner, Maria finds solace in the company of the other girls trying to keep their childhood alive.

Writer-director-star Giada Colagrande makes her debut in the noirish erotic drama OPEN MY HEART (APRIMI IL CUORE). She plays Caterina, the younger sister of prostitute Maria, who has also raised her sibling since she was a two-year-old. Caterina is essentially imprisoned in the home of the pair, remaining there even when Maria brings home her clients. She is only allowed out for dance classes that Maria escorts her to and from. But when Caterina develops a relationship with a man at the dance academy, upsetting Maria's carefully balanced house and their abnormal sibling relationship, her sister becomes unhinged and possibly dangerous. Colagrande's film mixes disturbing sexual elements with traditional imagery (such as Maria's embodiment of the mother-whore dichotomy) taken from the Italian Catholic backdrop the work sets itself against.

A typical slice of '70s Euro-horror-smut from the genre's most prolific contributor, Jess Franco. It's most note-worthy as the film which brought Spanish sex icon Lina Romay to public attention; since then she's appeared in literally dozens of the great man's movies, and continues to do so.
The Countess of Karlstein (Romay) is descended from a family of vampires, and can only stay alive by feasting on the living during bouts of energetic sex. Residing on the picturesque island of Madeira, the mute Countess takes to wandering the woods dressed only in a black cape and belt, seducing her victims and, erm, sucking the life out of them. She believes herself cursed to walk the earth in this way for all eternity, until the day she meets a moustachioed poet who embraces her vampirism and seeks to join her on the other side. Love, eh?
Female Vampire feels like its been filmed in slow-motion — everyone takes a ridiculous amount of time to do anything, be it deliver a sentence, walk across a room, or remove their clothing. Of course, this is Franco's way of padding a flimsy story out to 100 minutes, but were it not for the regular sight of Romay writhing naked, fellating bed posts and humping the life out of every man (and woman) she can get her hands on, things would get very dull very quickly.
But it does still remain kind of fun; the music is hysterically inappropriate, switching arbitrarily between drippy, orchestral balladry and elevator jazz guitar, irrespective of what is happening on screen, while the dubbing is of the standard you'd expect, and as with most of Franco's films of this period you are left with the sense that the director has never actually seen a camera before, such is the wild abandon with which he zooms, tilts and pans across pretty much every scene. Raunchy, dull and hilarious by turns.... it's a Jess Franco movie!
