Changing morals in the 1970s
22 November 1999 | by (Canterbury, England) – See all my reviews

From a 1990s perspective this film appears completely empty. The characters are shallow, their behaviour is shallow, as are the consequences of their behaviour.

However, this dismissal would be missing the point. The film documents a change in morals in 1970s' European society, and the shallowness of the holiday romances of both mother and daughter is exactly the kind of change the film focuses on. Their holiday flings are not a big deal - but had this film been made only 10 years earlier they would have been. The same can be said about Schneider's brief nude scenes; they appear so natural and non-spectacular that they make the very same point.

Overall, this is an interesting document of its period, but it has not much else to say.
