Original title is "Symblegma, to" directed in 1977 by Stratos Markidis.

Someone told me this odd sexploitation (with some HC scenes) was in fact directed by Jess Franco's producer Robert de Nesle. The guy directed a porn film called "Les théatres érotiques de Paris" (Erotic theaters of Paris) and this one called "Prends moi partout" (take me).
Very strange indeed as the cast has french actress :blink:
You can see the credits on Imdb.

Any information accepted.

TO SYMBLEGMA was the first h/c movie produced and directed by Stratos Markidis. In France it was released in December 1977 (visa 48199) with the title PRENDS-MOI PARTOUT and the direction credited to "Robert Hugue", an alias of producer Robert De Nesle (see "La saison cinématographique"). The general opinion is that De Nesle coproduced this movie with Markidis, bringing some actresses and demanding an XXX version for the French (and European) market, but that the direction itself was left to Markidis. Maybe actor Notis Pitsilos, who was in the original cast and is still around, could confirm these facts. Anyway, in the first half of the 80s, with his company "Olympus Films", Markidis produced and directed (at least) 7 more adult films.

And now Markidis directs some popular crime/drama series for Greek TV. Back in the 80s, just after Olympus Films, he shot some silly comedies straight for video market. Now these films have a DVD release as free gifts with weekend newspapers.

I suppose directors like Markidis and Tegopoulos try to hide their past from the public so these hardcore flicks have several VHS and DVD releases by different labels and nobody demands any copyright fees for them...

This film was out on an extremely rare Greek VHS as a Greek Erotic Double-Bill (!) with another sexploitation directed by Milonakos. I'm not sure which one, but I'll try to find and post the cover!

Let's also remember that Markidis in the 80s signed all of his hardcore movies with the pseudonym "Thanasis Mihailidis".
Apostolos Tegopoulos used the alias "Tolis Trikis" and Athanasios Kaspiris was the famous (and infamous) "Berto".
There was another X director, "Nick Jackson", whose real name is still uncertain: maybe Stelios Jackson, a director who made some movies in the 60s? What do you think?
