IMDb: A homely but vivacious young woman dodges the amorous attentions of her father’s middle-aged employer while striving to capture some of the glamorous life of her swinging London roommate.

 

No one is really likable in this story. The lead character is a ludicrous woman-child who has this penchant for sticking with horrible people. One redeeming quality though is her devotion to a baby rejected by its own mother.

The male love interest is an asshole and her female flatmate an insufferable cold-hearted mean bitch. Harsh much? Watch the movie. Calling her a bitch is actually already polite.

There’s also the father character who pimps his daughter to his old rich employer, who in turn pursues Georgy relentlessly and is able to convince the poor girl to be his mistress through his own scheming ways.

No character is really worth rooting for but because of the zesty performances of its actors, i was left intrigued to know the ending. Holy Mary Mother of God, Charlotte Rampling is so beautiful. I am so obsessed with her face!

Anyhoo, if you take this story as just a presentation of how it’s like during the 1960s swinging London, the baby-boomers and the common mores at that time, then this is a fair commentary to that.
