Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
While living in a Spanish fishing village, a German painter kills a fisherman in revenge, ostensibly, for the violation and killing of a Scandinavian girl who has been his boarder. The locals more or less felt that the girl had the rape coming to her, because she spent so much of her time parading around in the nude. However, what is really going on has more to do with international arms smuggling and labor disputes, and the movie swiftly becomes an unusually graphic gore-fest.
