Fun and frolics with some precise violence and a delirious ending

Very watchable and stylish if somewhat lacking of a coherent plot. But hey, French Spanish co-production this may be but there is just a whiff of giallo about it, so be prepared for anything. At first this looks as if it is going to be a rip off of the Kubrick classic. A bunch of orange helmeted youths invade a chic dwelling and start to smash it up whilst one of their number asks the lady of the house to lead him to the bedroom. Then just as soon as we reckon we know where this is going, another of their number takes hold of hubby and without so much a lisp asks him to similarly accompany him to the same room. Stylish, as I say, some humour, a rather wasted Jean Sorel and a much over used Sue Lyon. Nevertheless the director does not miss the opportunity of alluding to another Kubrick classic with the aforementioned lass. Fun and frolics with some precise violence and a delirious ending.
