A finely tuned cautionary tale set against a backdrop of smoky jazz clubs, ban the bomb protest marches and evocative 1960s London locations.
A beautiful continental au pair finds herself wrestling with the affections of an earnest peace-protester, a dashing young toff and a roguish older man. However, fun and freedom turn to shame and despair when she finds that her naivety has put her lovers, and their partners – including the well-meaning Janet (played by Big Zapper’s Linda Marlowe, in her first role) – at risk. Stylishly shot in crisp black and white, this was the directorial debut of Gerry O’Hara (All the Right Noises, The Brute), and is presented in a new high definition transfer.
