Alternate Versions

After a scene-by-scene comparison, it's obvious that the VHS version of this film is an entirely different English-language cut from the all-French DVD release. Fonda and McEnery speak their own English and French in the respective versions, while Michele Piccoli is dubbed in the English cut. It's very interesting, because even in the non-dialogue scenes, different takes--and often different actions--were used for each version.

Another Vadim sleaze film.
17 February 2003 | by DukeEmanSee all my reviews

This one has a bit of merit thanks to the performance of Fonda and Piccoli. The soap opera takes us into the lives of the rich and very rich. A bored housewife plays with her stepson and all sorts of naughty things pop up. When father catches on, he tortures them in his most wicked way by playing mind games. This and the decline of Fonda's sanity are the highlights to a film that could have faired better under a Master's control!
