A unique movie of benign schizophrenia (not split-personality)
2 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie on television in the late 19sixties - and was mesmerized - and haven't seen it since. I just checked Amazon and there is someone selling a video of it for $198.00. It is a very sweet film. Charming. Intelligent. Poetic. If you like taking walks in Springtime in a local uncrowded park, you might find it refreshing. There is a subtle ardor about it. It doesn't seem to 'pretend' anything. The 'Mystery' of it unfolds delicately, bit by bit, frame by frame. The 'Sorrow' of it is not built on mountains of angst, but rather a humorous metamorphosis that compares ordinary life to a pure renunciation of the trappings an ordinary life instills and sustains. Not a movie for 'Followers'. The 'Hero's' mindset or mental condition is obviously clinical, yet there is a simple beauty in it, something a person who grows up on a diet of 'Malls' will never understand.
