The title 'Oasis of fear' may be a bit exaggerated to today's taste, for this film is more like any crime-release you may watch on television nowadays.
And yes, some knowledge about society from 1971 comes in handy as well. With a prominent issue like the youth revolution, turning away from all stiff morals adapted by the elder generations. Seeking freedom, leisure and sex, released & relieved by the then new anti-conceptive. Starting for it right down in Copenhagen, because in those days Scandinavia was leading the way.
Although this issue is demonstrated abundantly by the young couple, one cannot miss that 'Oasis of fear' is really carried by the then 45-year old Irene Pappas -- adding at least 20% to this film's worth.
Another name worth mentioning is that of producer Carlo Ponti. I have seen better films from him, but I suppose it's his influence that makes 'Oasis of fear' worth watching up to this day.
