Storyline

Peter is the dark brooding type. Leading a vacuous, shapeless life, he longs for the ideal woman, while at the same time, half heartedly continuing with his habitual girlfriend, Marusa , who is considerably older, a fact that Peter is quick to point out. As an ageing actress, struggling for parts in her local theatre, she oozes insecurity and breathes uncertainty. Together, they spend their time in the local restaurant, smoking, drinking and trading verbal blows. "I bet you'll just end up a drunk," she tells Peter each time. Peter just grins and tells her how old she looks. Compounded by a thankless director who soon shows her the door, Marusa finds her identity being squeezed harder and harder against the wall. To escape, Peter and Marusa dream... Written by Abakusek

Achingly Beautiful
25 October 2013 | by (Glastonbury, UK) – See all my reviews

One of the most achingly beautiful films I've seen in a long time, there are many layers to this seemingly simple tale. We see how two people in the same relationship can be living two completely different experiences and how most of it happens in their heads. The surrealistic elements added so much to the poignancy of the film and were not overdone. We also see a love chain, as it were, with a woman so in love with a man who is utterly contemptuous of her that she is unable to respond at all to someone who loves her in spite of her flaws. How many of us have been there? And then there is the sinister presence of the neighbor/landlord who may have more to do with the outcome than either of the two lovers, and last, the two young lovers who seem to follow Marusa and Peter everywhere they go seem, to me, to represent the ideal relationship that they both seek so fervently but can't seem to find in each other. Tragic and hauntingly beautiful... this is a film that is a pure pleasure to watch, through every minute. If you can find a copy of this rare film, you will be glad you saw it.
