Description "France 19th century. The Franco-Prussian War. Several Prussian officers "bravely" occupy a chateau somewhere in Normandy. The French have scarpered. The Prussians are bored witless, out of their minds. One of them, 'Mademoiselle Fifi'- he hates that name - has taken to blowing things up. Precious things. They all drink too much. They throw a party and invite some of the local girls. Girls whom men often invite, for a fee. The girls hate the filthy Prussians, but their money talks. What a party. Full of lust, tension, wine, song, bawdiness and comedy and in one beautiful act of rebellion - murder."
