Stelvio cipriani the lickerish quartet 1970
The Lickerish Quartet (original UK title: Erotic Quartet) is a 1970 drama film produced and directed by Radley Metzger. The film was written by Metzger and Michael DeForrest. This was the last non-explicit sex film directed by Metzger.
A jaded, wealthy couple watch a blue movie in their castle home along with her adult son. The son is testy, so they go into town and watch a circus-like thrill ride. The daredevil woman in the show looks exactly like one of the women in the movie, so the man invites her to join them for a nightcap. Tensions among the family seem to rise. She stays overnight, and during her 24 hours in the castle, each of its three residents involves her in a fantasy. She, in turn, keeps asking, "Who has the gun?" Will there be violence before it's over?
In their castle, a wealthy couple (Frank Wolff and Erika Remberg) watch a blue movie with their adult son, played by Paolo Turco. Later that evening at a local carnival, they spot a woman (Silvana Venturelli) who appears to be one of the performers in the film and decide to take her home with them. Although a subsequent viewing of the film calls the womans identity into question, their house guest quickly succeeds in seducing the various members of the family, resulting in the revelation of certain facts, fears and desires.

It received critical praise upon its release by many critics, especially Andy Warhol and Vincent Canby as being one of the first films with graphic sex to have Hollywood like production values. However, Roger Ebert found the film to be pretentious and the plot convoluted.
