FULL SYNOPSIS

powered by AFI

Jayne, an anthropologist, arrives in Rome to show to a prominent anthropology professor a documentary film she has made illustrating the sexual practices and marriage customs of "primitive" peoples around the world. The film, seen also by two hotel porters who secretly have followed Jayne to her room, fails to convince the professor of her thesis--that love is universally primitive, affecting "civilized" man in much the same way it does "primitive." To prove her point, Jayne performs a striptease, which powerfully affects the professor as well as the porters.
