Here is a period-piece depicting a legend. Yes: That legend. The one about Katherine the Great of Russia. I’m sure you’ve heard it. Even though it isn’t true. That didn’t halt those crazy [West] Germans from bringing it to the screen. In the tradition of European erotica (& U.S.A.-made “Drive-In” movies), there were different versions made for different situations. Most versions had explicit imagery. The purveyor from whom I obtained this version also offers a version with more blood and gore. I opted for the version with the most sex (Danish subtitles). {I believe the key phrase translates to, “The most direct erotic movie since Caligula”.} In 18th-Century Europe, empires were not solely sustained by blood being spilled. Quite frequently, another bodily fluid was involved. In this movie, we view such machinations. I guess that Sandra Nova is portraying Katharine the Great. None of these names sound familiar to me. I suspect that some are bad puns {“Ina Reutter”!?}. So I list them all. Nobody has reviewed this movie in any tome I have found. The production values of this movie are startling. The costuming, the cavalry, the horse riders: These had to cost big bucks. And equally important; our ladies in here are beautiful. It is one thing if they didn’t want to use their ‘mainstream’ acting names. We are the beneficiaries of them performing erotic scenes in here.
