Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Nutty, Naughty Chateau is summed up in the encyclopedic book The United Artists Story as "Sex comedy drama." No more, no less. Actually, there is more: The film was originally titled Chateau en Suede, and it was directed by Roger Vadim. Based on a Francoise Sagan play, the film involves a group of eccentric jet-setters who gambole around a huge French chateau dressed in 1750s costumes. A young man on the run takes refuge in this curious household, and is gradually sucked into the soft-core sensual practices of its offbeat denizens. With Vadim as director, and a cast chock-full of such notables as Monica Vitti and Curt Jurgens, Nutty, Naughty Chateau deserves more attention than a three-word synopsis would suggest.
