Synopsis

A superb example of Deodato’s work not to be missed by fans of Italian sex/crime/thrillers. A shocking and frightening version of Polanski’s Knife in the Water. Two carefree youngsters, Irem and Barbara (Al Cliver and Silvia Dionisio), are invited for a weekend cruise on a yacht owned by Giorgio, a ruthless and cynical industrialist, who is married to Silvia, a disturbed woman who allows herself to be physically and mentally abused by him. Silvia then forms a love triangle
with Irem and Barbara who conspire against Giorgio, whose misogyny and paranoia pushes him over the edge into murder.

Reviews

It is a film that ranks with the best of Deodato’s output like Cannibal Holocaust and The Washing Machine. Highly recommended.
