I saw this film at the Montreal World Film Festival some years ago. The synopsis seemed interesting - a couple moves to a small village to escape trouble, but then they are investigated for the death of the woman's lover, whose body is found in their backyard. You would have to be a far more intelligent person than I am to be able to see this story in the movie, though. All I was able to see were seemingly disconnected scenes of the three protagonists (the wife, the husband and the police inspector) talking about God knows what and doing all kinds of surreal things. Particularly puzzling were some scenes where the three play and sing like children, going around in circles and throwing a ball to one another.
Summing it up, now I can laugh about it, but at the time it was the nearest thing to torture I ever had to endure. But then again, perhaps it is my own fault and had I been brighter and more cultured I would have been able to understand and appreciate the writer/director's vision.
