Another Film I’ve Seen That Contains Underage Nudity, another shower scene. I guess you can get away with this in an American film.
I know Hollywood has a history of luring talented foreign directors into her clutches and convincing them to helm far more conventional fare, but how did this happen? In 1985, Serbian art house provocateur Dusan Makavejev (W.R.: Mysteries of the Organism , Sweet Movie) directed an Australian set romantic comedy about cola starring Eric Roberts. Not weird enough for you? It contained a mother/daughter shower scene starring the smokin’ Greta Scacchi (see previous post) and a 6 year-old Rebecca Smart (making her just a few years too young for the tastes of this cinephile.) Not only does it blow my mind that Makavejev got away with this in a studio film (although the scene was cut from some early VHS releases), but according to the IMDB, Coke had no problem with it either!
This film was produced without the knowledge or consent of the international offices of the Coca-Cola Company. However, since both the company and its product were depicted so favorably in the film (as well as the film being free advertising), they took no legal action against the parties involved.
Hey, as long as Coke looks good. Basically, this means Coca-Cola has NO problem with this:
Click the above pic for additional stills which I was not gutsy enough to post. They are located at the Max Cinema forum, which seems to center disturbingly around nubile young girls appearing nude in “legal” films. Remember, the materials you are about to view were distributed by MGM, so you can’t be prosecuted for child pornography. Scacchi is smokin’ hot in this scene, but depending on your tastes, the presence of young Ms. Smart will either be the icing on the cake, or send your penis shriveling up inside your body. I’ll leave you to it. Good night, and good luck.
