Storyline

Ivan Bibic returns to his Pittsburgh PA suburb after surviving a Japanse POW camp, causing regular nightmares. All the time he remained faithfully devoted to his childhood love, fellow ethnic Yugoslavian virgin Maria Bosic. She dates him again, thus ruining a virtual engagement to captain Al Griselli. Against Ivan's dad's advice, they get married. But Ivan became psychologically impotent, feels unworthy of her and starts wondering, even looking for another girl. Meanwhile slick guitar-and-song-busker Clarence Butts moves in to South-Western PA, and seduces Maria. Written by KGF Vissers

Too distant to get involved
13 July 2011 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

The term "Cannon art film" may seem like a kind of oxymoron if you are familiar with the typical product producers Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus made when they ran the Cannon studio. But they did make a few dabs towards artistic productions, this being one of them. And there are some good things to say about this movie. Despite being a low budget movie, the period detail is pretty good, and so are the rest of the production values. The acting by everyone involved is also good, with Keith Carradine the actor who steals the show.

Unfortunately, I could not get involved in the central story involving the Kinski and Savage characters, mainly because we are kept at a distance from them. We never really get to see what makes them tick inside their heads. Also, the movie is stretched out far too long (the running time is 109 minutes) - a somewhat shorter running time would have made the movie better.

Don't get me wrong - this isn't a BAD movie. It never became boring, for one thing. But it does end up being somewhat of a disappointment.
