In her second film for Pasolini, one of five features that she appeared in during a busy year, Wiazemsky again plays opposite Jean-Pierre Léaud. The duo feature in a contemporary narrative (intercut with a medieval-set scenario starring Pierre Clémenti as a not-so-fine young cannibal), in which Léaud’s conflicts over his rich German family’s wartime past lead him to forsake trying-to-make-it-work girlfriend Wiazemsky in favor of rutting with pigs.
