Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

At the time a sexual showstopper, this can now be seen as an unconscious parody of Swinging Sixties chic. It is saved from mere shock novelty by Lynn Redgrave's performance as the dowdy girl pursued by older employer James Mason, who finds her own identity looking after the illegitimate baby of flatmate Charlotte Rampling. Former TV director Silvio Narizzano piles on the uneasy tricks of cinematic trendiness, but it's the acting that stabilises the story into something memorable for its boringly self-conscious era.
