Based on a story by the Marquis de Sade, Justine & Juliette (1975) is a Swedish sex farce with a liberal sprinkling of hard core action. The cast includes a young Harry Reems (Deep Throat), and
features Anne Bei Warburg and Marie Forsa in the title roles.
Justine and Juliette are thrown out of their home by their aunt after their mother's death, and given one-way tickets to the city. Juliette (Warburg) is not worried. She has a lovely body, and a lot of experience using it to get anything she wants. The virginal Justine (Forsa) is very concerned. They hitch a ride, and Juliette does the driver. As soon as they get to the city, Justine leaves and finds herself a room.
Juliette's new found boyfriend takes her to a sex club, then gets her a job in a bawdy house, where she sells her virginity 750 times (an astringent and a little fake blood fool any man with a hard-on). Meanwhile, Justine is attacked by the hotel clerk, and hits the streets, where she runs into her sister, and moves in. She meets a man at a party at the whorehouse, and loses her virginity, but loses interest when he tries to share her with friends.
The punch line to the entire film involves Harry Reems, whose will states that when he drops dead of his expected heart attack, his riches will go to whichever women is in his arms at the time. I don't want to spoil the ending, but sometimes good girls finish first.
