||Five men in raincoats stand round a bed on which a naked dead blonde is lying, handcuffed to the bedhead. As the story unfolds we find out that they collectively have access to this place , The Loft, which allows them to carry out extra-marital affairs. So one of them must have done this deed, but who is she and why has she died.
||The is a lot of non-revelatory sex, and some male and female nudity without the exposure of anyone’s rude bits. Various scenes in bars and restaurants as we catch up on the back story. A lot of time in the bedroom as the guys stand about wondering who could have done it and why.
||It may be that this was supposed to be an erotic thriller, and its biggest weakness might be that it is not in the least erotic. Mostly we keep wondering what motivation the guys have to be involved. Surely friendship is not enough, even before it all goes wrong. Absolutely panned by critics and public alike, but I’ve seen worse
