It's hard to understand why Allio made this film. The main character, as the title implies, is a cipher (though not always a sailor); the focus of power is Sanda's "fatal attraction" role. But this doesn't explain the artificial low-budget decors, the thinness of Sanda's as well as her lover's character, and the amateurish plotting of the denouement. A faded discount-store copy of a 50s costume drama.
