Storyline

Prince Leo, last in the line of rulers of a long-deposed monarchy on continental Europe and jaded with the frenetic search for kicks with the European jet-set, returns to his father's London town house for rest. With him are social-climber Margaret, to whom he is engaged, and Laszlo, who is planning a counter revolution which will restore Leo to the kingship of the monarchy. Leo is shocked to discover the one exclusive neighborhood has degenerated into a ghetto inhabited mainly by poor blacks on the brink of desperation. His nearest neighbors are the Mardi family and their beautiful daughter, Salambo, who catches his eye as does her boy friend the procurer Roscoe. Using the excuse of watching birds he watches them closely through field glasses with the coolness and detachment of a scientist watching insects under a magnifying glass. When Salambo is forced to become a whore in order to keep her family together, Leo, despite the pleadings of Margaret and Laszlo who has just about ...

visually striking
1 June 2007 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

As a huge fan of early Boorman I finally had the chance of seeing a nice 35mm print of this at the Cinematheque here in Los Angeles last night, (opposed to horrid bootleg copies i'd seen previously) There must have been about 5 people in attendance, which isn't unusual lately for the Egyptian Theatre, especially for rare 70's films. It seems the crowds get smaller and smaller, nobody seems to care. While dumb rap clubs throb away on the streets of Hollywood and people file in to see disposable tripe like Pirtates of the "Carribbean 3" or "Knocked Up" down at the mega multiplexes, this little oddity from 1970 plays away to a small few. A film that will likely never be screened again, anywhere, at any time. This is a strange time we live in, it's over. This is it folks, there is no future for cinema, there is no future at all. At some point after the 70's ended we took a wrong path. it is over.
