Robinson and His Tempestuous Slaves
A really crazy Jesús Franco in an international film, produced
by the great Artur Brauner with whom he often worked, for example in
the masterpiece "Vampyros Lesbos" and "Sie tötete in Ekstase", as
well as "X312 - Flug zur Hölle", "Jungfrauen-Report "," Der
Todesrächer von Soho "and others (for the record Brauner also
produced “L’etrusco uccide ancora"and"
“L’uccello dale piume di cristallo"and much more, including
This is a little-known film that parodies "Robinson Crusoe" in which
the Spanish director, albeit in his heyday, limits himself behind the
camera to carry out the task without exalting the viewer.
With a little more ideas and inventiveness this could have been a
noteworthy comic work. However even so, without strokes of genius
"Robinson und seine wilden Sklavinnen" known internationally as
"Robinson and His Tempestuous Slaves", has some good things. Of course,
it remains a minor work of our Franco, which disappears in front of the
giants of the time, but the idea is fun, the situations flow and the
vision is pleasantly.
Story of dreams, revenge and wives and mother-in-law that are pain in
the ass, starring Mr. Robinson Smith, played by the Israeli Yehuda
Barkan. English-speaking name for a pharmacist who lives in Germany and
dreams of customers' boobs and above all to run away from his wife and
mother-in-law. One day he succeeds. He finds a desert island and move
there. The island is not uninhabited, however, first of all there are
two topless castaways Samantha (Anne Libert whom we have often seen in
Franco's films) and Peper (Ingeborg Steinbach, interpreter of erotic
films including "Jungfrauen-Report"), which oblige Robinson to satisfy
them over and over again. Then there are the cannibals, led by a very
funny Howard Vernon and of whom Robinson, thanks to a surgical
operation on the appendix to Vernon himself, becomes a divinity. Also
arrives there the pretty Linda, Andrea Rau, who joins the list of women
to satisfy and who stays naked almost all the time and finally, his
wife, his mother-in-law and an astute businessman (Paul Muller).
Grotesque situations, crazy and a lot of nudes, lead us to a happy ending where everyone lives happily on the deserted island.
As said not an essential film in the vast filmography of the Spanish
director but Vernon as cannibal and the three girls are a valid reason
to watch this 1972’s film.
