Plot / Synopsis
Reems is a journalist given a chance to become publisher of a French hardcore magazine. Feature chronicles of his sexual (mis)adventures in pursuit of stories, like an African diplomat’s hot blooded affairs, and photos of the famous in infamous positions, with cute babes trying to drag him into the bushes, or wherever, at every turn. Funny, hot, and very 1970s....
"Bel Ami" is refreshing and funny, and is a real treat for fans of 70's adult cinema. There is an actual plot, the actors and actresses are both very attractive and perform just as well in the dialog-ridden scenes fully clothed as they also do naked. The film also has the almost non-stop euphoria of beautiful 70's Euromusic on the soundtrack. This is a film that adults can view and not feel ashamed or embarrassed. Harry Reems of course is terrific and quite comical as the bumbling hero of the piece, bumping his head on an over-sized phallic sculpture in a so-called art studio, rolling down a grassy hill with the latest female to jump his bones, and trying to sneak a peak at the almost unbelievably beautiful Christa Linder as she showers. Another treat for genre fans is the presence of Jacqueline Laurent, best known for her harrowing roles in the Jess Franco films "Lorna the Exorcist" and "Sinner"(both films have already posted on euTorrents). Here she looks beautiful, kicks back, and anxiously samples the physical charms of Mr. Reems, although the scenes between Mr. Reems and Ms. Laurent appear to be either soft core, or director Ahlberg avoided showing any further.
