This beautifully photographed work tries hard to be an Australian version of LAST YEAR AT MARIENBAD but never matches that film's quality or depth. Jones and Trsek are lovers staying in a country home. Trsek nearly drowns in the bathtub as she daydreams about her father's death, and from

there the story moves headlong into the artistically obscure. The two wander about in medieval dress, confront Trsek's late father, and generally muddle around. It isn't much of a story, although the photography nicely captures the Australian countryside. Markus, the producer, makes an appearance

as the being who transcends the world of the living and the dead. Ironically he died shortly after completion of the film.
