Storyline

Alda, her sister Olga, and the latter's daughter Sigga live together in an old house facing a cemetery by the sea. Self-assured Alda collects men; Olga shuns them, but cannot help following the activities of Alda (who receives her lovers in the sisters' house) with some envy. In their own way, both women refuse any emotional ties with other people, while keeping a strange attachment to their family's past, their deceased parents, and a third, deceased, sister. Will they, and will Sigga, be able to escape that environment imbued by the presence of death and find their way to a true life ? Written by Eduardo Casais <eduardo.casais@nokia.com>

Nothing new for Emmanuelle Beart or her fans...
15 November 1999 | by (Houston,Texas) – See all my reviews

Nothing new for Emmanuelle Beart or her fans... I bought this video from an online french "Amazon.com" equivalent, and was not surprised at all from what I saw. Not even Emmanuelle Beart's divine beauty can save this picture. Ms. Beart, please "NO" more prostitutes,adulteress women, or tormented souls. I beg you to give your fans another comedy! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!
