In the late 60's, after graduating in Mathematics, the German Stefan Brückner hitchhikes from Lübeck to Paris to see the world without money. He befriends Charlie in an arcade and they go to a party. When Stefan meets gorgeous American Estelle Miller in the party, Charlie advises him to stay away from her. However, the straight Stefan falls in love with Estelle and after breaking in a house with Charlie to rob, he follows her to Ibiza. Stefan seeks the hotel of his fellow citizen Dr. Ernesto Wolf where Estelle is lodged. He asks her to leave the place and stay with him in an isolated seaside house. Before leaving the hotel, Estelle steals some money and a pack from Wolf. Sooner Stefan learns that Estelle had stolen 200 doses of heroin and he decides to try one fix with her, in the beginning of his trip to hell. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

A film typical of the style of the late 1960's early 70's, however, this is somewhat better. The story centers around a young man who meets an attractive young woman (Farmer). The woman introduces him to the sordid world of heroin addiction (referred to by the old street name, "horse", in this film). As the movie progresses, the hero becomes more and more into the drug scene.

I will not expose the ending as it is a bit of a surprise, and quite well done, too.

Most notably about this film, the soundtrack was done by Pink Floyd, who released it as an album the same year the film was made. Because of this, the film is of importance to hardcore Pink Floyd fans.

Not a great film, but a good one anyway, and one that carries an important anti-hard-drugs message. As it is somewhat rare, purchase prices can be fairly high to ludicrous, so it is advised you rent it first (if you can find it. My local Blockbuster used to carry it at one time).
