Camille 2000 is a 1969 Italian language film based on the 1852 novel and play La Dame aux Camélias by Alexandre Dumas fils. It was adapted by Michael DeForrest and directed by Radley Metzger. It stars Danièle Gaubert and Nino Castelnuovo with Eleonora Rossi Drago and Massimo Serato. The film featured a drug use theme not present in the source story. It may have been considered a pornographic film in 1969 but is more of a drama based on the expectations of a man finding the wrong love.

Cast

Reception

The film was critically panned and has 17% on Rotten Tomatoes. Roger Ebert summed up the film in his one-star review as thus: "Camille 2000 is shot in color. It is dubbed into English instead of subtitled. It is wide screen. It has a pretty girl in it. Her name is Daniele Gaubert. Whoever painted that big sign in front of the theater has an accurate critical sense. The sign says: "See Daniele Gaubert presented in the nude ... and with great frequency." That captures the essence of Metzger's art."
