A handsome and mysterious young stranger (Terence Stamp) infiltrates the family of a wealthy Milanese industrialist and seduces each of them – mum, dad, daughter, son, even the maid – before buggering off again, leaving them changed forever.

Pier Paulo Pasolini‘s 1968 fable about the complacency of the bourgeois middle classes was initially banned in Italy and the director found himself charged with obscenity.
