In 1940s Venice, after twenty years of marriage, a Professor and his younger wife witness the passion wane. Now, all that remains is to confess the rousing thoughts to an elaborate diary hoping to break free from ties and inhibitions.
In 1950s Italy, just before the ban of brothels, Mimma, a young and innocent country girl, reluctantly accepts to work as a prostitute and become Paprika, in the hope of raising enough money to finance her boyfriend. However, before long, Paprika will learn to enjoy her disreputable, yet very profitable occupation, working her way up one client at a time, as she journeys from one brothel to another in the bustling city of Rome. But in the end, despite Paprika's stormy, still, prosperous voyage of self-discovery, experience and sexual liberation, there is still one thing missing: the great mystery of true love.Written by
Tinto Brass originally planned this film as a straightforward adaptation of John Cleland's "Fanny Hill", but after a number of years in development hell, he rewrote the screenplay and updated the setting to 1950s Italy. Still, the film manages to stay more faithful to Cleland's novel than most 'official' adaptations. See more »

When submitted to the BBFC for a UK video certificate in 2002, 1 minute 56 seconds of cuts were required for an 18 certificate - these were to a scene of incest and a scene of urolagnia. Due to a production error the 2002 Arrow Films DVD is in fact the uncut version. See more »
The plot is very simple. In late '50s a young lady starts working as a prostitute in a brothel in order to help his boyfriend. She thinks that is the easiest way to make money. I do agree. Mr. Tinto Brass centered the view in Debora Caprioglio, who plays the roll of Paprika. Hell, she is very hot, sensual... but as nothing is perfect in her life she will go from one place to another and this is a kind of repetitive. She is filmed from every angle you can imagine. You can imagine that with the view centered on Caprioglio the other ladies are not seen in plenitude. Doesn't matter Caprioglio is the hottest woman in the movie and is a well chosen actress for the leading actress. Her performance is very good. Finally I would like to say that this movie is far from pornography. Brass actual is close to porno. But this one has a simple plot, is funny, long but could be seen. 6/10 Andrés.
