This movie fails on every level; it sets out to be a farce, with one actor playing both the actor and her abestor. Using wigs and changing clothes, each pretends to be the other, with ... disappointing results. Trouble is, it's so slow - you can see what's happening long before it hits you. the script is poor, or maybe the translation. And the dubbing is fairly dire, with the voice actors competing with the real ones for uselessness.

The Duchess/Actor stands out, however; Pia Degermark shines head and shoulders above the rest; but she really doesn't understand sex appeal - or maybe her husband (the director) inhibited her.

A few funny moments, but any semblance of plot had fallen away after the halfway mark, with the most boring orgy I've ever seen, eventually winding down to a silly ending.
