I watched this movie in '98 during the Chicago International Film Festival. The beginning was rather mundane and I considered walking out. Then came the pivotal moment. The pain of the lead character was searing, her journey worthy of the Flying Dutchman. Five years later, I still see her face. I would love to see this film again, but it is not available in the US.
