This film was shot at Sir Daniel Wilson Residence at the University of Toronto with a cast of amateur actors. I was at Sir Dan's at the time: most of us trooped out to see it later in the year - and were rewarded with a couple of nude scenes that were mildly titillating then and would be positively tepid today. The movie is being flagged under headings like "gay interest" and "shower scene" - and it's noted that it was screened at Cannes. For all these reasons, it may have a modest degree of sociological/political/cultural interest. But be in no doubt: this is an amateur effort. I found the script painfully naive when I viewed the film 40 years ago - and it must be a profound embarrassment today. Not worth your time unless you're into the history of Canadian cinema.
