This is actually quite an old movie, which has been subject to some critical acclaim. It is a very typical British movie - sedate pace of narration, nice locales, strong accents, and people drinking tea all the time!

The story is all about a young girl - she's a school student who comes out during her lunch breaks to offer people on the street her 'company', in exchange for money. One day, she happens to ask this well-dressed, respectable looking man if he's interested. He takes her to his apartment, gives her lunch, talks to her and gives her the money - all without even touching her. She is very impressed with him, and sure enough, she falls madly in love with him.

Now, John Berg is a lawyer who has a decent practice, a good reputation and most importantly, a wife who loves him a lot. Slowly, the girl manages to seduce him, and he too falls for her charms. He manages to take her away to some beautiful island with a lovely house, and tells everyone concerned that he's going off on a business trip.

Now, there is a reporter who works with the local newspaper, and he comes to know that the lawyer actually makes so much money because he works for a mafia don. He does some research on John and discovers his relationship with this girl. He follows him to the island and tries to blackmail John into telling him where the mafia guy is.

The girl perceives him as a threat to John and herself, and kills him in John's absence. Now, just when the story starts getting interesting, the projector guy loses a few reels and completely screws up the whole mood. Finally, for no apparent reason, the girl goes and gasses John Berg to death. And to top it all, this is apparently a true story!

The movie in itself is quite good - if only it wasn't tagged as a semi-porn flick, you probably would enjoy it more. The plot doesn't waver too much, and isn't too boring. A good movie if you've got a couple of hours to spare, and are not really in the mood for a laugh riot or an action flick.
