Good film of its day, but a bit muddled.
23 September 2001 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

I certainly support wholeheartedly the sentiments expressed in other comments. They almost "say it all". Only a few additional comments.

The film seems a little uncertain of itself. Is it a drama? A comedy? A statement of University life in the 70s? A vehicle for some soft-core porn? It certainly is all of those, but which is the foreground and which is the background?

The funniest part of this movie would have to be where Petersen, heavily disguised as who-only-knows, prepares to have sex in public on the grounds of Melbourne University. It's good to see that this part of the movie, at least, doesn't take itself seriously.

Overall, a very good view of some aspects of mid-70s life. Quite good acting by famous Australian actors/actresses, before they became really famous.
