I saw this film at the French Cinemathèque as part of a Lou Castel hommage, but was a bit disappointed by what first looked like sexy stuff from Italian exploitation movies. In fact, it is a very talkative and somewhat dull love triangle between a man, his wife and his best friend. Nothing much happens, except long talks in the man's bedroom, plus some additional scenes in a party where women play the guitar one after another. It could somehow relate to incommunicability as seen in Antonioni's movies, but really, that would be pushing it a little too far.
