How did this film become so unknown?


I've never seen this movie, but I have long wanted to.

What I want to know is how it became so unknown so quickly. When it was released in the US in 1966, it was one of the most commercially successful foreign language films ever released in this country. Yet, in a few years, it seemed to disappear completely off the face of the earth and, now, absolutely NOBODY seems to have heard of it, let alone seen it.

I know it it is not on video, but does anybody remember seeing this film??????????

Yes, I have seen it, when I was very young. (At around 15.) Even that time it cause me big effect. It was sensual, I felt the woman actor very close to my feelings. She was pretty, but somehow everyday beauty. Such as a pretty girl next door.

I would like to get this film on DVD, but it is impossible. If you can get it from somewhere, pls help me to get a copy.

I saw this movie when I was 24 years old. It profoundly changed my views about lovemaking. I have never forgotten it.

How can I find it on DVD???

It is a must see. One of the best love stories ever. It also could be a primer for young people about guiltless sexual play as a part of a loving romance.

How I would like to see it again.
