  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Body

    **1/2. If it hadn't been for Carroll Baker, I'd certainly never have bought this DVD. Dubbed in German with no subtitles. Don't laugh now, dialogues are also important in this film set on Trinidad island even if the movie was primarily intended to spotty teenagers. Luigi Scattini is an auteur and his description of these four desperate characters stuck on a less than paradisiac island is worth a look.
