While their husbands are away on a hunting trip, two bored housewives get together to commiserate. One thing leads to another, and they wind up in bed. For one of the women the incident was just a pleasant diversion, but for the other it's turned into a fixation, and when she sees her "lover" going after one of the male neighborhood hunks, things take a turn for the worse.

Groundbreaking...but it sure could have been better.
I had no idea what this film was about when I downloaded it for free from archive.org. All I know is that I like public domain films and watch just about everything on their site. Imagine my surprise, then, when I found that this was a soft-core pornographic film (though very tasteful and mild by today's standards) and it addresses lesbianism and bisexuality--something quite shocking back in 1970.
When the film begins, Adrian and Denise are friends who share something in common--both their husbands work far from home and they are left together to fend for themselves much of the time. One day, the pair are out at a restaurant when they notice a lesbian couple sitting near them. Adrian seems disgusted by the couple but by Denise's reaction, you can tell that she is intrigued. So, later, when Denise puts the moves on Adrian, it isn't much of a surprise. What IS surprising is that Adrian reciprocates and they have a night of hot passion. However, although Denise is thrilled and wants to continue the affair, Adrian seems more like she's lonely for anyone- -and soon takes up with another man. Naturally Denise is hurt and she is left all alone. What's next for this couple? See the film if you'd like.
The film does present an interesting scenario. After all, you cannot expect women in a situation like this to LIKE being all alone most of the time and the fact that they'd turn to each other for love and affection is well presented. The problem with the film is that that acting isn't particularly good at times (particularly by the woman playing Adrian) and the ending is very, very vague and unsatisfying--like they just ended the film because they ran out of time or money. Still, a bit of a landmark film about lesbians, as it's quite sympathetic and the production values are very good. It's NOT some 'nudie cutie' film or the type picture that most today would consider pornographic--and the sex is rather restrained and tasteful. Worth seeing but certainly not a film for everyone.
