She was a housewife seeking kicks, in a world of swingers, drugs, playboys and orgies in the lurid '70s!
With a plot stripped from a 1969 letter to Penthouse Magazine, Viva tells the story of Barbi, a naive housewife who sets out to discover the seedy underbelly of the sexual revolution. With her best friend Sheila in tow, she encounters everything from prowling cougars, grandmotherly brothel madams and lesbian supermodels to full-blown orgies. Toss in a gay hairdresser, a funk-gasmic soundtrack and some surreal animated and musical sequences and you ve got one smoking hot slice of nouveau cult cinema. Biller's truly amazing accomplishment in Viva comes courtesy of her uncannily authentic design. It doesn t emulate the spirit of those swinging times, it's possessed by them. Just one whiff of the cheap cologne, one glance at the rugged polyester, and you ll have to submit to this killer escapade. - Fab Magazine
