Plot:
Roxanna is a woman who's life is driven by sexual urges. She has sex with anyone she can get her hands on, especially lesbians. Except for a lesbian, she sleeps with a man, a transvestite and another nymphomaniac. Her brain can't control her, and in the long run it tears her apart.

Our thoughts:
"Roxanna" is in many ways just a softcore flick, with plently of touching and breast sucking. We basicly just follow this stripper, Roxanna, while she's living out her sexual adventures. There is some hot lesbian scenes, that's for sure, and luckily the transvestite in this film is a girl actor. We never see his/her/it's penis, and neither do we see any other cocks. No on screen penetration either, which I thought was alright. More sex than there already is, would've made us forget the thin plot even more. Yes, there is a tiny plot to this film. At times we see Roxanna sit on the floor in an asylum, having a mental breakdown. Except for that, and a narration by someone I assume is supposed to be Roxanna's brain talking, there isn't anything else than softcore going on. The breakdown and narration makes the film interesting though. Also worth mentioning is that it would be a silent film if it wasn't for the narration. It's obvious that time was put into this film to make it more than just any erotic film, and I'm happy that it worked as well as it did, since I really wasn't expecting more than 51 minutes of tits and pathetic attemps to tie a story together.

The women in the film are pretty good looking. The lesbian that Roxanna meets is played by Swedish Uschi Digard, that many might know from films by Russ Meyer. We have plenty of nudity that'll satisfy, even though the fondling they are doing gets a bit boring at times. It's safe to say that if you were to buy this film just to get boobies and lesbian lovin', you'll be a happy boy.

The film doesn't need a long review. What you need to know is that it's alot more than just softcore smut. If you follow the narration and look at the breakdown scenes just as much as you look at the women, then you'll probably agree. I do think there should've been more breakdown scenes though, and probably have more stuff than shaking happen during them. It works enough to make us understand she doesn't feel well, but it wouldn't make it worse if more insanity was put into it. It's 51 minute runtime makes it worth watching.


Positive things:
- Naked women.
- Naked women that aren't ugly.
- Naked women that aren't ugly who are having sex.
- Not just an erotic film.
Negative things:
- Less fondling, more insanity. Please? (Did I actually type that?)

Rating:
Gore: 0/5
Nudity: 4.5/5
Story: 2.5/5
Effects: 0/5
Comedy: 1/5
