Four successful but bored middle-aged men – a pilot, a television executive, a chef and a judge – go to a villa to eat themselves to death. After the first night, one of them insists that women should join them. Three prostitutes make it through a day or two; but a local school teacher stays on. This one-of-a-kind farce remains as controversial and outlandish today as it was when first released. Decadent, depraved and a must-see.
