Attraction is a Art-House film set in the peak of the hippie era London, it is rich in late 60's symbolism, and maintains an authentic aesthetic sensibility (through Pop-Art graphics that are reminiscent of The Beatles 'YELLOW SUBMARINE' and more). Before he ventured fully into erotic filmmaking, Tinto Brass's films showed this aspect.
What seems like a trip in the park by Barbara, a beautiful young woman (played by Anita Sanders) turns out to be loaded with themes of race, politics, hippie culture vs conformity, and sexuality through a variety of techniques. These include clever editing, psychedelic influences and music.If you enjoy extremely alternative cinema, this is a must watch. While it is an essential watch for those fascinated by the 1960s aesthetic interpretation of sex and sedition, there's something for everyone - even the inner thoughts of Barbara which surface when she sees London's various sights, including a band of intoxicated hippies. While exploring London's bohemian parts, the viewers explores her thoughts .
