Storyline

A lonely executive Blackmails a young girl from the steno pool into spending a week with him at his flat. Full of wonderful mind games and dialogue Mister Hoffman only wants to share his love. The rather typical plot really involves only two people through out giving us lots of time to see what they can do. Written by The Kid @ Bellevue

liked the movie and the soundtrack
21 May 1999 | by chhanksSee all my reviews

Matt Monro sings the theme, "If There Ever Is A Next Time," written by Don Black. Enjoyed the movie - Peter Sellers is always good and the movie illustrates his bent for humor that's black and gentle at the same time - and the music might make you into a Matt Monro fan. A good test for your local video store.
