Madam Savant


by Tuna

Madam Savant (1997),  is an erotic thriller centered around Kira Reed. As the film opens, Kira's trailer trash husband catches her with the local stud, and blows him away, but misses her. The husband is jailed, and Kira hops a bus to LA. En route, she does a male passenger, who gives her the phone number of a cousin in LA, who he claims will help her get settled.

The "cousin" turns out to be a black woman much older than the white man who referred her. She is also the a madam of a whorehouse that every important police officer and public official in the world frequents. They are having a big party, when the cops raid, the madam is shot, and Kira hides with a valise the madam gave her. It is full of money, and the little black client book. The rest of the film concerns crooked and honest cops and worried politicians all trying to get the book back.

The plot involved too many people to keep straight, but the film at least had a plot to follow. I suppose it was a whodunnit, but I never really cared.

Since the film is a soft-core sex film, the most important element of the plot is that Kira takes over the business, and everyone gets naked constantly. The weakness of that side of the film is that nearly all the nude scenes are marred by constant cross-fading, and this distracted from the eroticism.

With that many naked women and a plot, it meets all genre requirements, and is a must-have for Kira Reed fans. It would be a solid C if not for the cross-fading.


The transfer is grainy and the focus is often soft.

  • The film includes full frontal and rear nudity from Kira Reed, Nichole McAuley, LoriDawn Messuri, Bianca Rocilili and others I was unable to identify. I suspect the two unknowns are Lorissa McComas and Samantha Mills.
