A decadent period piece and a sadomasochistic view of sexual relations, this singular, resonant, and at times even inspiring mannerist mess is far more interesting than a good many modest successes.
This is a sleek, mannered look at an affair between a cold, almost psychotic, call girl and a writer, who is a fraught with overtones of masochism.
The figures of alienation wandering through an elegant landscape may be familiar from the Antonioni trilogy of the period, but the pessimism, energetic misanthropy and disenchantment with the world are all Losey's own.
There's not much wonder that practically everybody who had anything to do with the making of this film was offering excuses and alibis when it opened in Europe in 1962.
A watershed work, a furious whirlwind vision
A grim drama springs from an unimpressive story.
Losey's original version is apparently lost in the mists of time, and what remains does not give us much of a clue as to its genius.
A bleak and overwrought yet powerful drama.
This adaptation of a 1945 James Hadley Chase novel moves with serpent grace.
Losey puts a political face on both romances and compares them to a cold world bereft of Eden.
Deliciously seductive and sinister. Moreau dominates!
