A strange film in content and delivery. Tanya who is dangerously attached to her abusive artist boyfriend, Lobo, has an extended dream, in which she and her belligerent beau live on a deserted island paradise (cue gratuitous nudity over the opening credits). Tanya befriends an ape, Lobo gets jealous, and the trio fight in a manner which comes close to slapstick. The comic violence combines with sexual symbolism to create an unnerving mix. Perhaps the weakness of the film is Tanya herself, who provides a feast for the eyes, but leaves the mind a bit empty. She seems to spend the whole film both confused and amused by the whole situation. If the film is about Tanya's sexual naievity, then this theme is not developed sufficiently. For its weaknesses, this film is certainly a unique and interesting creation, worth seeing
