Japan, 1970

Chinatsu Nakayama, Kotoe Hatsui
Directed by Osamu Tezuka, Eiichi Yamamoto


In the future three friends gather over whether Cleopatra was really as great a lover as her legend. They send their spirits back in time to ancient Egypt to find out for themselves.

Funny, sometimes burlesque erotic parody in a somewhat Playboy-style of the well-know history of Cleopatra and her lovers Caesar and Marc Anthony, by Japanese Manga legend Tezuka Osamu. In a twist of history Cleopatra even tries to seduce Octavian, but discovers he happens to be homosexual, and has to endure some attempts at bestiality by a slave. The original Japanese running time of 112 minutes was cut down to 100 minutes for the American market. English title: "Cleopatra: Queen of Sex".
