This is a black and white curiosity piece, an early work from Sally Potter and featuring the wonderful Julie Christie, working no doubt for next to nothing as there doesn't appear to be a budget to speak of. Visually stunning and interesting score but hard to understand what is exactly going on. There is relatively little dialog and some narration, neither of which makes any sense at least to me. Still anything with the luminous Miss Julie Christie is worth a look and the striking cinematography is very compelling. Filmed in England I suppose but some of the snowy outdoor shots look more like they might have been shot in Iceland but I do not know. I cannot highly recommend this film unless you are a Christie fan which I am or you like artsy films that may or may not have a hidden signification.
