It's the morning after John and Mary's first sexual encounter with each other, which took place in his New York City loft apartment. They had only met for the first time the previous evening at a crowded trendy pick-up bar. They are both uncomfortable with the situation but don't want to show that discomfort to the other. They both realize that they don't know anything substantial about the other - including not even knowing each other's name - as each tries through whatever secret means to find out with who he/she just slept. As they slowly find out more about the other, they inject their own perception into the information, which is sometimes not quite reality. Over the next few hours, they, together and individually, will try to determine if there is any potential future for them, which includes their thoughts about the current most significant other in their respective lives, one who is more significant than the other, and their feelings about what they think the other person is ...Written by
The magazine in Mary's apartment which John is seen reading is the quarterly British film magazine "Sight And Sound"; it is the Winter 1968/9 issue. Whilst this was the current issue at the time of filming, it is perhaps not a coincidence that it contains a detailed and highly laudatory article about "Rosemary's Baby", starring Mia Farrow, and a rave review of "Bullitt", directed by Peter Yates.

I don't want anymore to do with it. Not with jealousy, competition, the sound of bugles when we're all meant to line up for battle. When the bugle blows, I want to go home quietly. Lock the door, take off the telephone. I'll wash my hair, watch the saturday night movie and go to bed with a plate of cornflakes. I can do that most efficiently. I can vanish.

It had everything going for it, the hottest young stars of the late sixties, Dustin Hoffman and Mia Farrow, fresh from the successes of the Graduate and Rosemary's Baby. The director had just made the huge hit Bullit and the hopes were very high, the two stars were on the cover of Time magazine!
It was set in swinging New York, nice photography, cool apartments and clothes, it had to be a hit, right?
What went wrong?????? The script, I suppose. They hadn't considered that it had to say something. Instead we are treated to lots of meaningful looks from the leads. Though, they are good looking....
Is it a comedy? Hard to tell, funny it wasn't. In fact it's dullsville! Quite embarrassing at times.
It seems under-rehearsed, as if the actors had only read the script once. Mia Farrow is too mannered doing her little-old-lady-in-a-girls-body routine. Surprisingly Dustin doesn't overact.
This film disappeared from sight. Ms. Farrow hardly mentions it in her biography. Does anyone remember it?
