Quite edgy and risque for its time. Still good fun, though sometimes a bit juvenile.

This early 1970s Australian film is a classic tale of sex and alienation and first real sex. Alvin Purple is not a good looking man, in fact you could say that he is pretty ugly. Nor is he funny or a man of great character in any sense. But somehow, for reasons unknown, he is irresistible to women. He attracts women wherever he goes: on the bus, in the park, even just walking down the street.
The film contains a significant amount of sex and could be classified as a soft porn movie, but the sex is not for erotic purposes, but for comedic purpose as I cannot stop laughing as this awkward man who seems to know nothing about women has sex more times in a week than most people do in a lifetime.
I remembered the locations of Melbourne area that has changed from 1973 to the present which are familiar to me.
