Storyline

Plot Summary

Like Polanski's heroine in Repulsion, Susannah York's character is one that is seemingly haunted by memories of undisclosed magnitude. These memories are perhaps rooted in some sort of past sexual turmoil that causes York's character to see men as inherently the same. Written by Ed

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Actress Susannah York mentioned to director Robert Altman during one of the films pre-shooting sessions how she was writing a children's book called "In Search of Unicorns". Altman asked to read it. By the time he had finished the tale, Altman had decided to make York's character in the film a writer of children's' tales and asked York to quote parts of the fairy-tale in the movie. York received a writing credit for the film as the text was from her book. As such, the film represents actress York's film debut as a writer. See more »
