An elderly artist thinks he has become too stale and is past his prime. His friend (and agent) persuades him to go to an offshore island to try once more. On the island he re-discovers his muse in the form of a young girl.

Helen Mirren’s astonishingly beautiful 24 year old body is on full display here, in glorious flesh. It is a good little film about the life of an artist, with a small cast of well-drawn characters to keep it amusing, but the highlight is, and should be, the naked Helen Mirren cavorting in the shallow seas of coastal Australia. Nothing coy or repressed about it. She is the film and the artist’s inspiration. She will be yours too. James Mason plays the artist in need of spiritual refreshment. He comes to the coastal island and finds this beach-comber girl, and starts to paint. His reprobate friend Ned Kelly comes unwanted to sponge off him. But the show is Helen Mirren. You will want to breed with her immediately.
