El Biffo's rating of the film The Story of Joanna

Golden Age of Porn. Not as compelling as Damiano's Devil In Miss Jones from '73, however this one goes all out in terms of production value and may be the best film version of The Story of O. Beautiful sets, costumes, and a poetic narrative show a tremendous effort to be much more than "porn" (and it is) but the real strength lies in the beautifully framed and photographed sex scenes accompanied by Albinoni's Adagio.
