Most impressive film from Ugo Liberatore. Made two years after, The Sex of Angels, this is particularly interesting because it is a film made in 1970, in Oxford by an Italian. Alessio Orano is the male lead and Jane Birkin the female and even money on who is the prettiest. Looks aside Orano is excellent as the politically aware Italian student enrolled at Oxford and disillusioned from the start. he cannot see why whilst the rest of Europe is in turmoil, questioning everything, why the mighty college seems intent to carry on with its weird and bullying ways. The film begins leisurely but soon gets under the skin. The director has a fine eye for visuals and a keen interest in human behaviour helping to make this a most powerful movie, relevant, even now, 45 years on. Oh and, yes, Birkin does look wonderful throughout, even if we are not entirely sympathetic towards her as this descends from hippy tunes and green fields to corruption, violence and worse.
