Description: Even with careful handling, this sordid story based on a tale by the famed French writer Guy de Maupassant might repel would-be viewers, but add in scatology and high-blown philosophical maunderings by the lead characters, and you have a recipe for a cinematic disaster. In the story, a sailor has grown tired of his oceangoing life, so he leaves his ship on the sly and beds down in a local Mexican whorehouse. He is startled to discover that his own mother is the house's madam, and that his sister is one of the girls. However, after his sister turns a trick or two with him, he begins to fall in love with her.~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide
