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

Soft propaganda.
22 June 2019 | by alexferdman-98602See all my reviews

Yes, propaganda at it worst. All along it was toothless softcore with some skin then out of blue men change their gender and I'm suppose to follow propaganda lead because ruling class knows whats the best for me. Well, keep dreaming.
