In Praise of Older Women

In Praise of Older Women

About

On its release this was seen as a sexy sensation, but the years have knocked the bloom oof the rose. It's a tawdry tale of a Hungarian emigre to Canada (Berenger) who relices his sexual history, starting with the neighbour who seduced him when he was a teenager and documenting all the women who've put the lead in his pencil ever since.

Cast & Connections

  • Actor: Helen Shaver, Karen Black, Tom Berenger, Marilyn Lightstone, alexandra Stewart, Susan Strasberg
  • Director: George Kaczender
  • Writer: Paul Gottlieb
  • Producer: Robert Lantos, Claude Heroux
  • Photographer: Miklos Lente

In a nutshell

There's a pretentious attempt to explore the nature of love and lust, but mostly it's dull tale punctuated by scenes of unexciting erotica.
