Strange 70s style psycho-drama
4 April 2006 | by mountaingoat100See all my reviews

The first unusual aspect of this film is that it's from Denmark! With an all-British cast as familiar setting I took it as being from the UK until a scene halfway through had Roy Dotrice on television talking about Denmark's economy. The climactic scenes move to Japan which is another scenic twist. Mount Fuji is prominent here. The story has withdrawn executive Dotrice finding himself at a groovy hippie party where he is naturally out of place. Upon leaving he gets into a nasty accident which he flees. Judy Geeson sees what he does, and turns up the next day at his office, in effect blackmailing him for a job at his firm. Dotrice, in his polite English manner, becomes increasingly perturbed as she insinuates herself into his life. After a brief liaison on the train in Japan, he comes up with a permanent solution to her attentions. At times it reminds me of other 70s character studies like "Hoffman", "Loving" and "The Touch". There is a hippie party, pot-smoking and wife-swapping; all signs of the times. Dotrice is very withdrawn and Geeson looks like a swinging chick. Both actors moved to the USA soon after this. Overall this is a nice discovery from a time long gone from cinema.
