An English soldier (Cliver) returns home from the Zulu war with the daughter of a tribal king (Gemser) as his slave (a gift that he was given for "saving" the kings life). The spoils of war, ya know? While he's been gone, his wife has been having an affair with the female housekeeper (Belle). Not at all pleased with being a slave, the Ebony princess notices the mistress of the house engaging in a quick bit of foreplay with the housekeeper and plots her revenge starting with the seduction of the mistress. Jealousy spreads like wildfire and before you know it, she has turned the household into a lustful frenzy of sex and hatred.

A faded aristocrat military officer returns from the Abyssinian war with a dusky slave girl as a prize; at first, his bisexual wife and his secretary dislike the girl intensely, making racist comments about her skin colour and “smell.” But soon the girl charms her way into the mistress’ affection, supplanting both secretary and husband. This causes jealousies to fester.

Superb erotic film directed by Joe D’Amato. Elio (Al Cliver) comes home from war with a slave (Laura Gemser) that has been given to him by her father, a Zulu King. At home though he finds that his wife, Alexandra (Lilli Carati) is fooling around with their housekeeper (Annie Belle). Zerbal, the slave, jumps into the action by having a relationship with Alexandra. The movie L’alcova was directed by a famous Joe D’Amato who is master in erotic genre, and you can find a lot of his movies here : Emmanuelle in AmericaPapayaThe Pleasure

Italian writer, who served in the British Army, returned home after the war in Ethiopia, he brings with him excellent trophy – a captive Abyssinian princess (Laura Gemser). Dark-skinned babe becomes his concubine, but it is not so simple: his wife is not indifferent to the fair sex and the prisoner wants to use it to their advantage. Once saw a translation titled “The Power of black lesbians” (“The Power of Pink Negro”).

I can't give away too much more or it would ruin the story, but there are plenty of little twists along the way. Speaking of twists, this film is actually far more twisted than it sounds. One of the more disturbing moments being a sequence about the filming of an inquisition-themed porno that turns into the sadistic rape of a lesbian / virgin by the filthy and none too bright gardener. Sporting tons of full-frontal nudity, simulated lesbian and straight sex and some hard-core (as seen in an old stag film), this has the sleazy goods to go along with the D.H. Lawrence-ish setting and atmosphere, and is definitely recommended for fans of such
