Tinto Brass directed this stylish and eccentric vision of Europe during the cultural upheaval of the late-1960s. Barbara (Anita Sanders) is a beautiful woman married to Paolo (Nino Segurini), an Italian businessman who brings her along when he travels to London on business. Left to explore the city on her own, Barbara takes a walk in the park and sees a band of hippies who are enjoying the day; as Barbara explores London's bohemian district, she keeps crossing paths with an American (Terry Carter) who is tall, good looking and black. For the rest of the day, Barbara drifts in and out of a world of fantasy where she leaves her stodgy husband for an adventure with the handsome stranger, while a variety of hallucinogenic tableaux play out around her as a rock band provides a running commentary on the action. Filled with the sort of casual nudity and striking visuals that would play a much larger role in Tinto Brass's later work, Nerosubianco (aka Attraction) features a number of original songs performed on screen by Freedom, a group led by Ray Royer and Bobby Harrison, founding members of Procol Harum. The film was released in the United States under the titles Black On White and The Artful Penetration of Barbara. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
