the ending is so audacious
30 May 2014 | by (Greenwich - London) – See all my reviews

Surely the supply of wondrous gialli cannot go on forever. I already have 139 in my personal list and now, one more and a real sparkling gem. Carroll Baker ostensibly is the star but there are a whole bevy of beauties and surely Gianni Garko outshines them all with his massive performance. As the title credits role we have a strange, underwater sequence, completely unexplained (until the glorious and outrageous end) and the film proper begins with a murder, or does it? Fairly gruesome though not very bloody and plenty of nudity, particularly towards the end. Indeed the ending is so audacious and seemingly crazy and out of some other film that I failed to fully appreciate just how well it was done, the underwater lesbian sequence, that is! I found the soundtrack a bit jarring and sometimes seemed to simply consist of bit of pop records but its hard to criticise such a delightful and surprising discovery.
