Derek (Richard Brown) is practically the next gouvernor of wherever ... but then he meets singer Angie (Tara Buckman) at a nightclub, is fascinated by her, returns to the club a few days later, visits her in her dressing room to shag her ... and pays her afterwards as if she was a cheap whore, and thinks that's that - but it isn't.

A few days later, Angie lures him to her place, and the two of them promptly run into a mob of paparazzi. Now this is bad, because the scandal forces Derek to resign from his campaign, and his wife (Jayne Gray) divorces him and sues him for every penny he's got ... and it was a setup, too, orchestrated by Derek's own campaign manager Steve (Ken Werbinski), who assumes his place in the process, and Angie's manager William (Rick Anthony Munroe). Angie was in on it of course, but now the unexpected happens: She has fallen in love with Derek, and soon they become a couple and move in together. However, the whole scandal has left Derek without a job, and thed divorce has left him without money, and soon they have to leave Derek's luxury home to move into a cheap apartment - where Derek becomes a drunkard before too long. But despite having no job and no income, he doesn't allow Angie to go back to work. She soon prostitutes herself and has sex with Derek's old campaign manager to make him help Derek, but he simply doesn't deliver. Eventually, Angie goes back to work as a singer at William's club, and she becomes a success once more, but Angie going out with other men as part of her job and doing a nude photoshoot doesn't sit well with Derek ... so they break up.

All of a sudden, Derek's wife comes back into his life and wants him back. He takes her back, and before long the two of them move back into their old home again. Angie bumps into Derek once more and tries to lure him back to the club, but no such luck - and that leaves Angie heartbroken.


In title, in story, and in Tara Buckman's stagbe outfits, Blue Angel Café is (vaguely) reminiscent of Josef von Sternberg's The Blue Angel - however, this is pretty much where the similarities end, because the new movie has none of the directorial verve, charm, depth and hindsight of the earlier one. Instead it's just a weak and rather impersonal piece of boring softcore erotica, of which director Joe D'Amato had made quite a number in the late 1980's/early 1990's, probably the least inspired period of his career. What further spoils the movie: None of the actors are really up to their jobs, and Tara Buckman might be a beautiful woman and definitely has the right body to do nude scenes, but she totally lacks the erotic charisma a role like hers would have demanded - basically, she just doesn't look and feel like a woman you would leave your wife for.

In all, the film is best summed up as a disappointment.
