Did You Know?


For this film, Nancy Kwan wore costumes made by Mary Quant, and had her hair cut by top hairdresser Vidal Sassoon, in a short, geometric bob. Considered the first time the styles (both of hair and of wear) of swinging London to be captured on film. See more »

Charming and unusual
10 November 2018 | by blissfilmSee all my reviews

I found this film really very charming, with values that have all but disappeared from popular entertainment, but still hold quite true. In that sense, the script was unusual and rare. It didn't shy away from sexuality, but rather praised the substance of love. The actors were very good, particularly Thomas and the whole variety of excellent British supporting players such as Spinetti. The very interesting part of this film is the perfect casting of Nancy Kwan at the time. I don't know any other actress I could have seen perfectly in this role, with the hint of seriousness that is in her face.
