After the death of a provincial bourgeois, George Laffite, all his close relatives are gathered in his huge mansion to mourn him and see who gets what from his estate; an attractive widow, Hélène, aged thirty-five, Antoinea, moronic son, Victoire, daughter at religious boarding school and the reactionary grandfather, Edmond. Suddenly freed from paternal supervision, the family members plunge into unrestrained sexuality with a rutting driver and an equally willing maid, eliminating all the differences in status. Greed, lust, love and class conflict between the family and their payed servants create a real mess rather quickly. Written by lament

Was this ever released on DVD,as per the DVD cover art on IMDb
25 October 2017 | by sigmagnSee all my reviews

I have the old VHS copy of this film. Many years ago I typed the movie title into google and a DVD version was advertised on Amazon France. The exact same cover as featured here as the cover art. I contemplated buying it..and so the next day I went back on Amazon and it was no longer advertised. Still kicking myself to this day. This is one movie I do a search for once a year ,just to see if anyone has found an upgrade..but it just isn't to be.
