Strange, fascinating drama continually eludes viewer perceptions
3 March 2001 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Just when you think you've got a handle on this picture, it tosses in a curveball. Flirtatious Jane Fonda, married (but bored) to an older millionaire, has a tricky relationship with her 20-ish stepson which leads to a steamy secret affair. Director Roger Vadim shows off an amusingly twisted sense of humor (odd for a director who, with "Barbarella" two years later, showed no sense of humor at all!); Fonda, at the time Mrs. Vadim, has a marvelous, wicked gleam in her eyes--she's determined to have not just her slice of the cake but the entire dessert! There are problems here, but only minor ones: the voice-dubbing of the actor portraying Fonda's husband is bad (he sounds like Thurl Ravenscroft, the ride-narrator at Disneyland) and the role itself is sketchy--he schemes on the side, off-camera, so we only see the results. Also, the background music is a tiny bit excruciating and repetitive. But Fonda and Peter McEnery (as the handsome kid she becomes obsessed over) are first-rate, as is the chilling ending. A most peculiar concoction, multi-layered and often devastating, with terrific production design, art direction (with subtle mod overtones) and cinematography. Well worth-seeing for grown-up audiences. *** from ****
