English girl Bisset travels to France to visit her former lover, Zimmer, and his family, who live in a beautiful chateau. Her presence greatly disturbs the household--especially Zimmer's wife, Pascal, who feels old and threatened by this gorgeous, young woman. Porel, the couple's son,

seeks to seduce Bisset but is frustrated by her lack of response. Trying to hide from this madness, Bisset turns her interest to Zimmer's young nephew, Maurin, who has shut himself off from the family since his parents died in a car crash. The beautiful woman's attention brings the boy out of his

shell (and arouses some definite sexual feelings), but he is crushed when she returns to London without him. Potentially powerful material is diffused by a complicated visual style, and some badly drawn characterizations.
