Yugoslav filmmaker Dusan Makavejev has brought off a most unusual film built around the late Wilhelm Reich, proponent of cosmic life, the energy of love, and the power of the orgasm. It is handled with shrewd association, charm and sheer fun.

Makavejev interviewed some Reichian practitioners in the US, including his own daughter and son, and also filmed some touch sessions, breathing trauma displays, plus listening to a US transvestite talking about his first homosexual affair, and a Yank painter of masturbation scenes.

Tale centers on a Yugoslav beautician, who harangues her household about the need for sex that would cure all the ills of repression. She develops a crush on a Russian champion skater and literally loses her head over him.

Makavejev fills the 80 minutes with much brash and even sly wit, dynamic dialectics, excerpts from a Russo cult film, intercut with Nazi films showing backward or deranged people.
