Jurgens is the insanely jealous, crazed owner of a lonely castle in the hinterlands of Sweden, where he lives with his equally loony family. His young, attractive wife, Vitti, is constantly on guard because of her husband's paranoia, and she loyally aids her demented brother, Brialy. Flon,

Jurgens' older sister, insists that everyone dress in 18th-century fashions so as not to destroy her illusions of the past. One day Jurgens' cousin, Trintignant, arrives for a visit and falls in love with Vitti. Soon after, the young man sees an apparition of Jurgens' first wife. The wife,

however, turns out to be very much alive--although having been driven mad by her near drowning in the lake. Because he could not divorce her, Jurgens had declared her dead and then locked her up in a bedroom. Vitti tells Trintignant that Jurgens also murdered a man he had suspected of being one of

her lovers. Trintignant decides to watch himself, and his instincts prove wise because Jurgens and his sister soon attempt to kill him. Trintignant escapes and runs home to inform the authorities of the strange goings-on at the house, but he is shocked to learn that a major magazine has just

arrived to do a cover story on the family of lunatics. Another dull Vadim comedy.
