Mostly it is a drag
8 August 2005 | by fritzo46See all my reviews

I picked up this movie because I am a big Bibi Andersson fan – but getting this movie was a big mistake. To start with Bibi Andersson does not play the role of Patricia Tauling as stated here. She is in the role of Blondie which is a rather small role until the last 15 or 20 minutes of the film. The role of Patricia Tauling is played by Catherine Jourdan.

The previous viewer comment (andybob-3) does a good job of characterizing the movie. Mostly it is a drag. If you are a big Bibi Andersson fan, do yourself a favor and skip it.

The IMDb information says the language of the movie was in French. The VHS version that I watched was in English. Perhaps two versions were made.

As the previous reviewer commented there are a couple of rather steamy sex scenes thrown in. I wonder if was ever shown theatrically in the US or just released on video.
