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 is a true "art" film, it has great depth and insight, but doesn't give the viewer a clear story-line to follow or any help at all such as side comments or scene setters. The film is a virtual feast of expert filmmaking in all its facets, especially the fine framing of the scenes, truly natural acting and sound work second to none. How many filmmakers could make a short scene in a plane and the subsequent landing on the runway a filmic event of such beauty it will be long remembered.
I think this film is one not to be missed
