Description: Silvia is young, beautiful and rich. She has everything, but nobody can satisfy her dark sexual needs. When her husband goes on a business trip, she starts working as a secretary for Margaret, a famous film star. Margaret appears to have no problems giving her what she wants and turns her into a sex slave- little by little, she becomes a slave subjecting herself to increasingly serious humiliations in a masochistic relationship.
Delightful movie joining effectively eroticism, mental and physical cruelty and sick relationships. Very refined and tasty as to aesthetics, a real joy for eyes of those who love fashion, hairstyle and interior design of that period, the movie tells the development of a slave – master relationship becoming estabilished, consciously, between a born-well lady, agoraphobic and essentially devoid of interests and propulsions other than sadomasochistic imagination accompanying her days, and a famous actress, who hires her as a lady’s companion.
