Rad Video Review
Shot entirely on location in Venice, Italy, during Carnival, this film has a solid plot, good acting and a nice-looking cast. French tourists take their son, Fontenay, along on a business trip, and junior soon finds himself involved in all sorts of mayhem. He is chased by a group of "straight" guys while in costume and finally cornered by one, Baud, as Romeo. Fontenay, as Julien, falls in love and can't wait to meet his Romeo again. Befriended by Piras, as Silvio, Julien is invited to the Barons Ball, which happens to fall on the same night as Romeo's bachelor party.
Locked in his room by his mother, Julien rings up the bellhop, who frees Julien, but not until after getting a piece of his ass. Silvio takes Julien to an initiation, in which Romeo is blindfolded and fucked by 3 hulks in masks. At the Barons Ball, an orgy of Caligulan proportions ensues, during which Julien gets smashed, plowed and covered in food. Silvio tosses his third big load of the film, and Romeo arrives to save the day. Tossing out the orgy crowd, Romeo carries Julien to bed, as any good straight guy would.
Wonderful film, great locations and costumes. The orgy scene does contain numerous male/female pairings, just in case you can't watch those things.

TLA Video Review
by Mr. Powerbar
A truly amazing pre-condom classic.
William Shakespeare meets Zalman King as master pornographer Jean-Daniel Cadinot's erotic eye turns toward Italy to capture the initiation of an inexperienced youth into the sensuous and decadent world of Venetian nobility.
This is rich and wonderful stuff, up there among Cadinot's best. The sex is hot, which is always a plus with costume dramas. The big orgy scene at the end is great.
An all-out modern masterwork, this was completely shot on location in Venice during Carnival
. Don't miss this one.
