Kathryn, a glamorous American widow, arrives in Italy several weeks after the death of her older, extremely wealthy husband. With the help of Brian, her lawyer, she moves into a luxurious villa and proceeds to lead a lonely, uneventful existence until one day, a handsome young man, Peter shows up at the front gate, looking for tools so he can fix his sports car. She lets him stay the night, and the next thing she knows, she's madly making love to him in the shower. He eventually moves in, and is soon joined by a free spirit he introduces as Eva, his sister. She enjoys their company and partying with them - until she begins to suspect that they aren't what they seem to be.Written by

Just a little bit one note, this is such a good performance from Carroll Baker that it deserves a look. Baker is to inherit and there are of course many who wish to interfere, not least two youngsters who invade her mansion. At first they seduce her with sex and psychedelia and then move on to torturing her with much the same to drive her crazy and eventually they hope to suicide. Some of the music begins to drive us mad but the visuals are usually inventive and colourful partially distracting us from very much a two against one struggle. There are a few surprises and from comments made it is clear there is an Italian and American ending, guess which is the more cynical?
