Ok so I apologise for this one right off. I'd forgotten i'd ever watched it and for some reason it came back to mind.
It was a german movie subtitled english. Erotic in it's nature and i've no clue when it was made (I prob saw it about 15 years ago but I really am guessing)
The main (male) character was called Georg Hermes, who met this girl called Betina who shared a flat with another couple of girls. (who by the end of the movie he sleeps with)
his girlfriend (Betina) tells him at some point that his name isn't an accident that he really is the messenger of the gods (by insinuation that they are the three graces??)
i appreciate that this is an odd one
Der Philosoph (1989)??
could well be - can't be many movies that have a char by that name. Didn't think that this would be answered so quick. :-)
Der Philosoph rings a really faint bell, but like I say it was a long time ago. It was a surprisingly watchable move, but that said I was probably about 16 when I saw this so no real yardstick should be taken. :-)
