Loosely based on Edgar Wallace's novel “The Clue of the New Pin”, this movie by Massimo Dallamano is one the finest examples of giallo film-making. The dreamy opening credits set the tone for a story revolving around the theme of innocence and the social longing for its loss.
Fabio Testi is as convincing as ever in the role of a gym teacher at a Catholic Girls' School in London whose flirtations with one of of his students put him in the role, usual for giallo leads, of both suspect and detective.
The movie rests on a solid script, the action moves along nicely between the well-written dialogues instrumental to the investigation and the brief, powerful moments of graphic violence which, however, never feel gratuitous. A couple of funnier moments also contribute to make the script's balance which makes this film a small masterpiece.
The Czech DVD's version has a has a pretty good visual and aural presentation. As often with similar giallo DVDs out there the sound could be clearer in some places. The only downside to this product is that the DVD comes with a unique audio track in English with Czech subtitles which cannot be switched off. Other than that, highly recommended purchase!

Watched the film on blu ray then with insightful commentary by messrs Jones & Newman on DVD with no problems on this ARROW release in U.K. When comparing it to the washed out cut version I've had for years from its showing on BRAVO channel there is a lot of detail missing.How the victims have been killed were never shown in older version although nudity and the body of dead dog were left in.Commentary explains how Germans recut it even more,as an Edgar Wallace style police led murder inquiry,though sadly not included as a bonus feature. Still we get this giallo gem as it was originally intended.

Very well written giallo and well paced. The story covers a very sensitive area around girls becoming adults as well as the murder aspect.

Not much of a fan of giallo but decided to give it a go. Exploitation is the key ingredient and here you have it on spades. The central suspect's character and tormented relationship with this wife has a neatly directed turn in fortune, with the two becoming united in clearing his name. Other than that the Italian style clashes incongruously with the London setting, the plot takes some interesting twist and turns and keeps you watching, however I couldn't help feeling it was simply an onslaught of improbable detective work layered with one naked woman after another (hey! that's what Giallo is about, so well done!)

An excellent early 70's Giallo set in London ( and I'm not a sad bedsit boy as one other obviously bitter reviewer has published). What Have You Done To Solange is certainly one of the more shocking entries and only having just discovered it recently I can say that I was pretty shocked and speechless by the end credits. A great performance by Fabio Testi in the lead, his character is certainly not going to appeal to everyone as he does have an affair with one of the 18 year old students. The less said about the story and details the better, all I can say is if you're a fan of Giallo then seek this out, it's one of the best.

excellent service from company. However, it is not their fault the box claims to be uncut but is shorter in running time and obviously cut when compared to my video version. still a good addition to any Italian giallo fan. all i need now are DVD versions of the rest of the trilogy.
