This shallow film is a transparent attempt to make people think that the director and producer actually are in touch with the rebellious youth of 1968. The main character is a young man who is not opposed to sleeping with older women or men to get ahead. He meets a young hippie girl, a free spirit who rejects his life in a nice apartment, a decent auto and a future. They engage in a brief affair, but the young man has no intention of giving up the opportunistic preying on his willing victims. Another young man leaves his wealthy family behind to become a long-haired, guitar-playing hippie. Some colorful French nightlife and a few nude scenes spice up this pretentious, overbearing feature.
