After hijacking a space shuttle, a spy finds that the controls are malfunctioning and sees alien battleships approaching Earth. Many years later, when the arc of his flight path returns to earth, he finds the planet under alien domination.
A woman's lover drives her to suicide, and her sister seeks revenge.
This 1968 Greek sexploitation film is one of those rare cases of brilliant direction that looks pretty goofy. It's an overwrought tale of a weak-minded woman who loves her man so much that she allows him to pimp her out, among other degradations. When he kicks her out of his life she kills herself. The meat of the movie is the revenge that the girls sister carries out. Told in partial flashback (the sister is reading the deceased's diary throughout) this black and white film is one of those great emotional European films that shows Americans how to passionately smoke cigarettes, and scream like an animal when the situation warrants it. It's a simple movie, but that's a big part of the charm. It's like a snapshot of a time and place that leaves you feeling like wearing Beatle boots and drinking whiskey.
