Just past the nine-minute mark, when Christina stands next to the guy playing piano, she casts a shadow on the right side of his face, which appears and disappears in each shot. See more »
What did you do that for? Poor soul! You shattered the big ebony phallus! Poor soul! Misery is now your lot!
Misery? I'll be miserable?

This was certainly one strange movie: Carmencé (Britt Nichols) is doing her toenails during a funeral service, and a head as a flower vase is in her room. Christina (Christina von Blanc) even drops in unexpectedly while Carmencé is licking blood from a blind girl (Linda Hastreiter).
Everyone keeps telling Christina that no one lives in the castle she is visiting. One has to wonder as they do not eat with her. Maybe they are ghosts. They certainly don't object when she inherits everything from her father.
She not only sees her dead father (Paul Muller) several times, but he talks to her. Is she dreaming? Is she dead and just doesn't know it? Death runs though this film.
I have to say for a low budget film, it was beautifully done; the scenery and music were very good, and it was strangely interesting.
