PlotEdit

A beautiful French stripper named Nicole (Susan Scott) learns that her father was stabbed to death on a train, and she is questioned by the police about some missing diamonds. Strange things begin to happen as she gets threatening phone calls trying to get her to reveal the location of the diamonds, and then is assaulted in her bedroom by a masked man with blue eyes, later remembering that her extremely jealous boyfriend Michel (Simon Andreu) owns blue contact lenses. She runs off with a handsome British eye surgeon (Frank Wolff) to get away from everything, and they go off to a quiet village on the coast of England, but her crazy lover Michel follows them.

Critical receptionEdit

Allmovie gave it a mixed review, citing its "demented screenplay" and "[Luciano Ercoli's] often overreaching direction" as drawbacks.[2]
