Description by OLDIES.com:
A black comedy about the sexual escapades of the upper crust in Britain. Lee Remick and Richard Attenborough star in this sophisticated sex comedy based on one of Iris Murdoch's novel. When a vinter's wife has an affair with her psychiatrist, he's expected to keep a stiff upper lip!
This sophisticated black comedy sex romp is based on the novel by Iris Murdoch, which she also turned into a stage play (with J.B. Priestley). Ian Holm, is hapless wine-taster Martin Lynch-Gibbon who has both a mistress (Jennie Linden) and a nymphomaniac wife, Antonia Lynch-Gibbon (Lee Remick). His best friend, psychiatrist Palmer Anderson (Richard Attenborough), is having an affair with Antonia. Palmer's half-sister Honor Klein (Clair Bloom) is having sexual relations with him also, which he is slightly apologetic about. The wine taster has had a lifelong antagonism for his friend's half-sister, but after his wife and mistress leave him, he takes up with Honor.
