A leitmotif of masochism and sado-masochism forms the pivot around which the sexual encounters in this banal erotic film turn, and turn, and turn. (This content was the controversial reason the two co-directors were refused a government subsidy for their work.) Wanda is a dominatrix who lures men and women of all types into her sado-masochistic world of sex, and as these encounters occur, there is no inciteful accompanying dialogue that might point to politics or philosophy or whatever as a subtext. Perhaps that is the message, and perhaps there is no message. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, All Movie Guide
