A love triangle develops between three people who run a high-tech chicken farm. It involves Anna who owns the farm, her husband Marco who seemingly kills sex workers in his spare time and Gabriella, the beautiful secretary.
Giulio Questi’s second film is a brilliantly unidentifiable genre hybrid, combining giallo with a love triangle and sharp critique of capitalism. Giddily stylized, with an ace cast including Jean-Louis Trintignant and Gina Lollobrigida, it marked an apotheosis of 1960s modernist Italian cinema.
