Film critic Sergei Kudryavtsev in his book "3500 film reviews" writes about the film:
“American critic Leonard Moultin, not accepting Bob Fossy’s film, accused him of a kind of“ voyeurism, ”that is, spying on someone else’s intimate life. In fact, the director is extremely delicate in such a scrupulous story, and all the more so far from relishing juicy details from life models of “Playboy.” The Swedish cameraman Sven Nyquist, who has already demonstrated, in addition to the works of Ingmar Bergman, delicate taste and tact, for example, on the set of a public house in the picture “Adorable Child” by Louis Mal, is very beautiful and really highly artistic I shot an attractive Mariel Hemingway, including nude, singing the amazing beauty of a woman’s body.It’s another matter that you don’t sympathize with the main character, and in the drama of a beautiful blonde who died prematurely, you don’t see the nervous aggravation, the electrification and nakedness, the vulnerability of a defenseless soul, as if on display, as it was expertly and painfully expressed by the same Fossi in Lenny.
- The main role was played by the granddaughter of Ernest Hemingway Mariel Hemingway .
