Confused, non-linear film tells the sexual story of a film director from his life at age 5, age 12, age 16, a man embarking on his first film in 1950's Tunisia, and finally to his current life. Along the way he has sexual exploits with an older woman as a teen, gets involved with an Italian couple Tunisia that culminates in the killing of a local boy and the brutal revenge murder of the woman, and ultimately is married to a cold woman.

This movie is a strange one. It is difficult to work out the meaning the film maker is trying to convey. The story is very disjointed, you don't know who is who or more importantly what they are doing and why they are there. There movie flicks between totally different scenes which for me had no link whatsoever. I think the message trying to be delivered was totally obscure and I for one couldn't work it out. It seemed to be too "artsy". Perhaps the maker should next time try to project their message in a more straight forward way so normal people can understand.
