Review

A star rating of 4 out of 5.

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