A woman returning home falls asleep and has vivid dreams that may or may not be happening in reality. Through repetitive images and complete mismatching of the objective view of time and space, her dark inner desires play out on-screen.
The movie starts with an intro of a woman telling the mythical story of Oedipus and the Sphinx. The movie then goes into showing a woman fixing breakfast for her child. A womans voice is heard saying one word at a time that relates to the current scene being shown. The woman in the film puts her child in bed. The camera slowly moves horizontally while loud synthetic music plays in the background. This occurs throughout the whole film.
I have seen many experimental and "art" films but during this film I became so bored that after about 45 minutes and more than half the viewing audience had left I finally got up and walked out also.
I don't recommend this movie unless you need a place to take a nap.
