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.

Strange, fascinating drama continually eludes viewer perceptions
3 March 2001 | by moonspinner55See all my reviews

Just when you think you've got a handle on this picture, it tosses in a curveball. Flirtatious Jane Fonda, married (but bored) to an older millionaire, has a tricky relationship with her 20-ish stepson which leads to a steamy secret affair. Director Roger Vadim shows off an amusingly twisted sense of humor (odd for a director who, with "Barbarella" two years later, showed no sense of humor at all!); Fonda, at the time Mrs. Vadim, has a marvelous, wicked gleam in her eyes--she's determined to have not just her slice of the cake but the entire dessert! There are problems here, but only minor ones: the voice-dubbing of the actor portraying Fonda's husband is bad (he sounds like Thurl Ravenscroft, the ride-narrator at Disneyland) and the role itself is sketchy--he schemes on the side, off-camera, so we only see the results. Also, the background music is a tiny bit excruciating and repetitive. But Fonda and Peter McEnery (as the handsome kid she becomes obsessed over) are first-rate, as is the chilling ending. A most peculiar concoction, multi-layered and often devastating, with terrific production design, art direction (with subtle mod overtones) and cinematography. Well worth-seeing for grown-up audiences. *** from ****
