A woman lets her paramour take naked pictures of her which reaches the hands of a stalker. Thus starts Woman of the Lake, a tale in many ways similar to Woman in the Dunes. A story of frustration and desperation, the woman cannot decide whether she wants to face the inevitable moment of truth or push, peddle and hope for a compromise. In the end, the results are all too complicated and it is a surprise if she retains her sanity. Against a backdrop of lonely landscapes, the woman betrays, is betrayed, and a complex series of events lead the film to a strange, but captivating, end. The performances are extremely restrained and lend a great depth to the film.
