Storyline

Peter Glahn is released after years of incarceration as a political prisoner and is now returning to his homeland, the mythical Mandragora where the sun never sets. On board the ship home, he meets the mysterious Juliana Kossel who vanishes after stealing his heart. Once he arrives on the island, he goes to the family ostrich farm run by his sister Amelia. He finds Amelia living with a farmhand named Cain Ball who fears that Peter's return will endanger the agreement he made with Amelia that will see him inherit the farm. Amelia has since fallen for the vain Dr. Isaac Solti who controls the island and has a hold on both Zephyr Eccles, the widow of a local fisherman, and Juliana, Peter's dream girl from the ship. Solti's true obsession is a recently discovered statue of Venus that possesses strange powers. All the characters meet at Solti's lab where the sexual tensions erupt. Written by pr1mal_1

Quotes

[first lines]
Juliana Kossel: Mandragora. There is no night there now. Daylight shouts in your ear. Did night-time hold you down by the wrists? Where did you get those bracelets, bracelet-scars?
Peter Glahn: Prison. Prison. Prison...
Juliana Kossel: You have the look of a cornered animal, very menacing. Did you go mad?
Juliana Kossel: And what now? Now that you're free.
Peter Glahn: Home. To Mandragora.

Too long a dream!!!
26 January 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This surreal fairytale setting and the campy dialogue doesn't sustain for a full 90 minutes. You are swept away during the first half on heavy soft filtered images with exploding colors but soon come to shore as the movie winds down, getting us all ready for bed.
