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 ...

Mastrianni saves the black people!
20 September 1999 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

In one of the more bizarre movies I have ever seen, Mastrianni stars as a rich, but somwhat shy rich person who spends his days spying with his telescope on his black neighbours across the street and the antics they get into. When I thought this was going to be nothing but a very strange variation of Rear Window, Mastrianni soon joins their cause in fighting for better living conditions... Soon he finds out that he actually owns the buildings in the first place..

Whoa, this is a John Boorman film? I should have expected actually, because his work wildly fluctuates. I have NO idea why Marcello Mastrianni is in this movie, as he either acting for the money, or curiously oblivious as how dated this was going to look after a number of years. A curious Movie indeed.
