An older woman (Georgina Spelvin) moves in with her sister’s family, composed of the sister, her husband and two children (a boy and a girl). The woman pits the various members against each other, sparking a lot of hard feelings, incest, foul play and eventually the splitting up of the family. The story unravels in flashbacks, as the woman sits reflecting on all the damage she’s done.
The film is one of director Robert McCallum’s first efforts at erotic filmmaking and one of his most impressive. The editing and composition have the appearance of a foreign art film, yet the women are as sexually arousing and delicious as in any homespun sex film. Not only does Georgina Spelvin give an outstanding performance, but the whole cast does as well. Sharon Thorpe’s seduction of the boy sizzles with excitement and sexy intrigue. The story’s premise also contains enough humor, personality, charm and eroticism to keep it from being overly pretentious and depressingly dramatic.
