Erotic surrealism....
9 May 2012 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This surreal short film is based on the text from the bible concerning the fall of sodom and gomorrah.

But the film does not tell this story in traditional manner, instead opting for a more esoteric, surreal tone and style.

There are graphic depictions of sexual behaviour, homosexuality, that must have been very controversial at the time when this film was made. And I suppose, still is in certain countries.

There are some strikingly beautiful visuals in this shortfilm and the use of experimenting film techniques makes it film way ahead of its time.

Should be seen by anyone interested in early avantgarde cinema.
