Commissioner Gabriel is investigating the mysterious death of a car mechanic
found naked in the front seat of a crashed sportscar with a bullet hole
in his head. The murder case takes him to the palatial estate of Count
Anatol, the owner of the ruined car. There, Commissioner Gabriel talks
to a housewife and butler who seem all-too-anxious to reveal the inner
secrets of the Count's domain. Seemingly, after the death of his wife,
Count Anatol married a "simple farm girl who had the reputation of
being a good fuck" and now he enjoys making her available to his
extended circle of friends... for a price, of course. This open marriage
results in one kinky, sexual episode after another which eventually threatens
to destroy the very foundation of the Count's lifestyle.
Nachmann's NAKED COUNTESS is an eye-popping German
exploitation movie with loads of full-frontal nudity and lurid sexual
decadence. While punctuated by elegance and psychedia, the story is unusually
menacing. Ursual Blauth (e.g. Uschi Blauht) was a Dutch model who
understood her role perfectly and had an amazing body to match. Despite
the dark story, director Nachman brightened the production with colorful,
vivid sets inspired by Hieronymus Bosch's Garden of Delights.
Kurt Nachmann was better known as a scriptwriter (and novelist). He wrote
100+ films, often working with Hubert Frank (ANGEL
AND THE BEASTS), and usually under the Joos De Ridder or
Johannes Weiss pseudonyms. He directed only a handful of films.
Mr Nachmann died in March 1984 at age 68.
rather astonishing how many genre movies were released with the NAKED
adjective in the title. Here's a list that comes to mind immediately:
POISON. There are many, many more.
