A wealthy Italian bourgeois family faces collapse after each member (and the maid) is seduced in turn by a mysterious Christ- or Devil-like stranger (Terence Stamp at the height of his powers). An enigmatic fable used to explore family dynamics, and, in particular the subversive power of homosexuality to undermine the patriarchal image.
