France and Manny are cousins, born on the same day to twin sisters. They grow up feeling a bond as if brother and sister. When he returns to London from boarding school, France and Manny make a pact in which each finds a suitable romantic partner for the other. But when they go away to the countryside with Margaret and Fred, a strange incestuous impulse seems to exist between the cousins, while Manny also must deal with a pregnancy.

    The Buttercup Chain Film Intuition Review Database DVD Review The Buttercup Chain

    Vincent Canby of The New York Times said: "(Director) Miller and his screen writer, Peter Draper, avoided any revealing psychological confrontations in favor of making one of those depressingly modish movies in which the sensations created by things like slick photography, beautiful nudes and intrusive soundtrack music become the substance of the film, instead of its context."
