A sexy but slow-moving slice of Sixties style that merits more attention than its been given on this side of the Channel. Its hardly an overlooked classic, though.

Like the swimming pool focal point of the film, things on the surface may look bright and inviting but deeper down there is something altogether more chilling.

Deray does a deft job in capturing the hedonism and abandon of the period, where good looks and chic clothes conceal dark feelings that lurk beneath the surface, helped by a toe-tapping soundtrack by Michel Legrand.

An intriguing forerunner to François Ozon's Swimming Pool, it's languidly paced and elegantly lensed, though its prize asset is Delon/ Schneider's sexual sizzle.
