Frank (Hugo Metsers) crashes a car and leaves his lover Sylvia (70s softcore sex superstar Sylvia Kristel in one of her earliest roles) to sort things out as he was quite drunk when driving. This ought to be the last straw for his wife Eva (Willeke van Ammelrooy) and his boss (Dirk Scheffer) yet again ... but the both take him back, the boss because he's too good a salesman to let go, and Eva - well, heaven knows why, she sure deserves better, and she knows it. But this should have been a wake-up call for Frank, but it isn't, instead of getting his act together he goes on a drinking tour with his friend Joop (Helmert Woudenberg), and he goes so far as to bring Sylvia home to Eva on one occasion, and even tries to have other affairs besides Sylvia. For the longest time, it seems like he would always land on his feet, and even when Eva threw him out, she'd always take him back eventually - even though he doesn't approve of her pregnancy or her attempts to have affairs of her own. Then though, when Eva has thrown him out once again, his best friend and father figure Max (Lex Goudsmit) dies, which throws him off the rails, and following that, he starts having problems of the sexual variety, and he starts to realize there's more to life than just having a good time - but this realisation might come too late already ...


Now this is a film that's definitely a product of its time, the characters' attitudes towards sex and everything else are just pure 1970s, as is the film's attitude, really, that marries softcore erotica to serious (and thought through) drama rather than just going the exploitation route, without a sledgehammer to drive its message home, but enough comedic interludes to keep one entertained. So yeah, it certainly helps to watch the movie through a mist of nostalgia - but that doesn't make the movie bad let alone antiquated in any way, as it's a nicely told movie with all the elements in the right places, and nice and fitting performances from all the involved. Of course, it can't deny its production era, but it's very solid and rather sexy entertainment still.
