Pretty girls
28 July 2002 | by dbrookfieldSee all my reviews

Gauguin floats and struggles through life, wanting only to be back in Tahiti. There's a sweet housegirl (Sofie Grabol) who wants to be with him, and a dark-skinned girl who lives with him. Both model nude for him, and both are petite, young and slender. If nothing else, they make it very entertaining if you are so inclined.
