This 1971 Italian/Spanish giallo is a hugely enjoyable and very stylish murder mystery set on the luxurious Côte d'Azur. Spanish director José María Forqué – who later made the controversial Beyond Erotica – brings together a talented and good looking cast, one of the best cinematographers of the day (Alejandro Ulloa), and a fantastic, lounge style score from Maestro Piccioni to create a twisty, and twisted, tale of deception and revenge. The director's long career at the more prestigious end of the Spanish Cinema and the presence of award winning scripter Rafael Azcona - who worked with many top European directors - gives the film an edge of sophistication alongside it's enjoyably devious narrative.

The film is like the smooth blue waters of the Mediterranean where it's set. It looks inviting and seductive, the sun glistening off the gentle waves; but beneath the surface sharks are swimming, and they're hungry for prey...
