Linda Marlowe, Margaret Rose Keil
In 1960s London, 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. But 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, and set against a backdrop of smoky jazz clubs, ‘Ban the Bomb’ marches, and evocative London locations, this finely tuned cautionary tale was the directorial debut of Gerry O’Hara (All the Right Noises, The Brute).
