DMYTRYK, communist in 44-45, convicted of anti-US activities & informer -as KAZAN- of other Hollywood leftists. 70ies, end of horror films wave & early erotic films. == Avant-dernier film de DMYTRYK, communiste en 44-45, condamné pour activités anti-américaines, puis dénonciateur (comme KAZAN) d'autres gauchistes hollywoodiens. 72, fin de la vague des films d'horreur & début des érotiques. == Music by Ennio MORRICONE
Unspeakable, very nearly unwatchable. Profoundly embarassing on pretty much ever level. It actually has delusions of being a sort of RULES OF THE GAME-ish dissection of the European upper classes, believe it or not.
Seems awful at first but then the flashback structure started to intrigue me as a clever update to the all too familiar story despite the sleazy 70's trappings. Then the ending's weirdness made it horrible all over again. So bad it's good, as they say!
