"Hunger, Longing for Love"

Hunger - Sehnsucht nach Liebe (1997), or Hunger, Longing for Love, is a German film about a bulimic woman (Catherine Flemming) and a romance that nearly allowed her to overcome her disorder. She was a successful advertising executive, and most people couldn't guess that she had a problem. Other than very explicit scenes of the splurge and purge activities, this was on about the level of a movie of the week. We didn't learn nearly enough about her, or the other major characters, and the entire cast seemed like they only showed up for the paycheck.

The good news is all three Bs in a shower scene shot from above, and brief breasts in a sex scene from Flemming. IMDB readers say 5.7 of 10. I admit that I am not wild about disease of the week films, but even defining the genre that narrowly, this was a weak effort. C-.

    "Chi l'ha vista morire?"

    Chi l'ha vista morire? (1972), or Who Saw Her die? is a giallo by director Aldo Lado that is shot mainly in Venice. Lado welcomed filming in his home town, and sought out places that tourists often miss. George Lazenby plays Franco, a well-known sculptor estranged from his wife. His young daughter comes to visit, and turns up floating in a canal. Similarities between her death and the earlier death in France of another girl convince everyone that it is the work of a serial killer. Franco decides to find the identity of the killer, and, before he is done, uncovers a wealth of corruption and moral decay. The film also has some pedophile overtones.

    The film doesn't have the extreme gore often found in giallo's, but does have the characteristic sex and nudity, including full-frontal from an unknown, and breasts and buns from Rosemarie Lindt. I found it a little slow-paced, and, despite a very good DVD transfer from original negatives, the interior shots were often too dark. The ending was telegraphed too early in the film, and characters could have been better developed. IMDB readers say 6.3 of 10. It is a competent giallo, and no more. C.

    Yo, dudes, I'm on summer vacation. Will be back to work in a fortnight, but in the meantime, I'll be sending in a movie report now and then about the stuff now in the theaters, and maybe some "other crap". I did manage one picture today - Nicole Kidman's butt, so it's not a bad one.

    • The yellow asterisks indicate that I wrote the review, and am deluded into thinking it includes humor.
    • If there is a white asterisk, it means that I inexplicably determined there might be something of interest.
    • A blue asterisk indicates the review is written by Tuna (or Lawdog or Junior or C2000 or Realist or ICMS or somebody else besides me)
    • If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.


    On Friday I usually check Italian paparazzi mags Novella 2000 en Eva Tremila for some celeb nudity. This time I was lucky. The paparazzi caught petite (152 cm...about 5 feet for the Yanks) Kylie Minogue topless an a beach near Sydney. So I scanned the pages for my uncle and the Fun House readers to enjoy. I'm sorry about the quality though but the paper isn't very good and the pictures certainly aren't any sharper in the magazine.

    Julie Strain Topless in a great collage by Dann from the movie "How to Make a Monster". This was one of the Cinemax "Creature Features" that came out last October (along with "She-Creature" and "Teenage Caveman"). Dann comments that it is not bad if you're in the mood for a no-brainer movie with plenty of violence, gore, and some nudity. He also adds that Julie's part was kinda funny.

    >From the BBC...a Darwin Award Contender. Note third paragraph...

    A wedding feast in north-east Pakistan turned to carnage after a mortar shell launched in celebration misfired, killing 21 people, including the bridegroom.

    More than 40 guests were wounded in the accident, which happened in the village of Korez, 250 kilometres (180 miles) south-west of the border city of Peshawar.

    Local officials said guests had been "joyously" firing their weapons in the air in a traditional act of celebration, when one of the groom's relatives loaded the mortar "upside-down".

    It exploded prematurely, killing several people outright.

    The wounded were taken to a government hospital in Kohat, where some of them died from their injuries, hospital sources said.

    Officials said 14 children, women and the 22-year-old bridegroom were among the dead.

    Korez is in the lawless region of Orakzai, where tribes are powerful and the government has little influence.

    Weapons are freely available on the black market there.
