Not quite a giallo, not quite a sexploitation film, more of a psychological thriller. Damiano Damiani’s film is loosely based on Alberto Moravia’s La Marchia Dietro. It stars Catherine Spaak, Florinda Bolkan and Jean Sorel. The last two would be reunited in Lucio Fulci’s Lizard in a Woman’s Skin two years later.
Sorel overhears an erotic phone call between two women and fantasizes about what they might look like. He meets the younger of the two (Spaak), then her stepmother (Bolkan) and becomes involved in their tangled relationship. Spaak, who carries a loaded revolver in her handbag, also has a stalker who spies on her. The couple play games, imagining the perfect crime and filming their love making. But what is a game and what is reality?
