Anton Karas's famous Third Man melody opens this lovely sex satire and, together with the shrill colours, accounts for its very jaunty temper. A couple of machinations inside the fashion and clothing industry are introduced, combined with the sexual anarchy of a business man, most charmingly played by Barry Foster.
Also quite impressive his love interests: Delphine Seyrig and her film daughter Kirstie Pooley. (The third major female in the film forms a nice surprise for Austrian TV fans: Ellen Umlauf, the old gossip from Kaisermühlen Blues, can be seen here, much younger, speaking English and being dubbed by an elegant standard German voice!)
Robert van Ackeren's movie is a wonderful relic from the wild 1970s. It really raised my mood today!
