Critical receptionEdit

A reviewer in TV Guide wrote that "the premise of this film is compelling, but the treatment is empty-headed";[6] and The Spinning Image asked, "and those hoping for titillation? As with so much of the sexually-themed cinema of this (British) nation, they were offered it with a moralistic angle, as if telling the audience off for their prurience."[7]
