LBJBR’s Encyclopedia of the Actresses of Exploitation film

Abril, Victoria

Spanish born actress Victoria Abril is somewhat of a dual threat when it comes to film. While one could argue that she is in fact an artist and great, fearless actress but. on the otherhand, you could easily label most of her best work (Tie Me Up,, Tie Me Down among others) as exploitation. Sure, Europeans are much more liberated about the depiction of sex and nudity but they are doing so in a medium and a methodology that the true master s of the genre utilized.

Art? Exploitation? Is there really a difference.

Born Victoria Rojas in Madrid Spain, Victoria Abril has appeared in films all around the world. From her native Spain to Iceland and the US, she has been there and done it all.
