Sexy Girls, Sexy Appliances

Australia, 1991 (MIFF 1992, Fiction)

Director: Emma Kate Croghan

A comic and caustic pastiche of a B-grade 50's pornography. Visually delightful with a real eye for the colours and formal concerns of the era and genre! Serving up domesticity, roast dinners and sex with lashings of humour. (AH)
