Review: I don’t know what the previous reviewer was expecting from this low-budget thriller when he reviewed it; I think he overlooked many of the great qualities of this fine little film. David Warner and Louise Fletcher are such fine actors that it is just a joy to watch them. As for the story, it is a clever, almost Hitchcock-like tale, always keeping us guessing right up until the end as to who the killer actually is. All eyes point to the main character, a young man named Johnny La Spada who has gone to a mansion in Santa Barbara, California, to find his birth-mother. He has been seduced by an unhappily married older woman (Barbara Carerra), who is both deceptive and beautiful. The film has a number of fairly graphic nude love scenes, but I feel that their use here is not gratuitous; rather it is just one of many techniques that give this film a very European look and feel. There is an exploration into the oft-examined lives of the ridiculously rich and just how much some people will try to get away with. If you’re looking for a fun 90 minute ride that enables you to play a part in the investigation of the questions in the story then Peter Foldy’s “Tryst” is definitely worth checking out.
