The film consists of stylistic excesses, erotic and pseudo-erotic scenes, with various sexual practices and inclinations being shown or hinted. SPOILERS: Young man is attracted to an older woman, her very young son is attracted to the young man while her husband not only likes guns and violence, but he also likes to watch. Controversial in its time (early 70s in socialist Yugoslavia), the film is not to be confused with equally or/and more provocative films by Pasolini or Bertolucci. Although the director (Hladnik) was one of the earliest and artistically most convincing heralds of modernism in Yugoslavia in early 60s, this film seems cheep and quite dated and uninteresting today. The slow motion used in several scenes (for instance at the beach) can actually be funny to some viewers (particularly those who remember Pamela Anderson and "Baywatch", or the way "Naked Gun" trilogy uses such devices)but this is not funny in a good way. However, some critics (feminists, queer critics etc.) might be interested in scenes where male body is objectified.
