Jewel Shepard is Christina Von Belle, “The Playgirl of the Western World,” which means she takes her clothes off a lot and has plenty of sex. She jets around from one European location to another, engaging in the previously mentioned activities. Something of an adventure plot kicks in when she is kidnapped by guerilla lesbians, and is subjected to rather odd bondage games (what’s with the toy cars and trucks being driven over her body?).The plot isn’t enough to actually make the film interesting, though, and Shepard might be willing to take her clothes off, but isn’t so willing to act. I’ve seen planks of wood deliver more passionate love scenes.
The Private Screening Collection DVDs haven’t exactly been distinguishing themselves when it comes to audio and video quality, and this release is no exception. If anything, the sound is a step down, in that the music, which was the saving grace of the audio on Love Circles, here is prone to gurgling.
Love Circles doesn’t look great, but it does, at least, look better than this. Grain and pixellation are bad, and the image is soft. But when these flaws combine with a certain murkiness, the result is some scenes that are well nigh unwatchable. The print is prone to speckling, as well.
There’s a tiny hair of interest in this sexploitation, but it is just that: tiny.
