It's been many years since I've seen this, given it's rarity (released in 1992 but still not available on DVD, with old VHS copies advertised for up to 150 euros online). The Pixies soundtrack throughout makes for a great atmosphere when combined with stunning cinematography of sweeping beaches and also when Albert and his cohorts drive around at breakneck speed. Crazy kids. I have to confess I barely remember a thing about the plot, just the lasting effect it's had on me.
The main reason I wrote this was really to discover if anyone else has seen it (I see there's only one review on this site, with which I heartily agree) and to try and get some kind of campaign going to get this marvellous film released properly. Given Bruno Nuytten's fame as a cinematographer, it's sure to be very well received.
