On Top - Iceland, a lighthouse, a cold winter evening. Her thoughts drift back to that summer ... to bathing in the hot springs ... to when they first met ... and embraced. Down Under - Australia, the desert, a blistering heat wave. His pickup stops at an icehouse ... he lays the blocks neatly on the buckboard ... and drives off haunted by a aching memory. Without dialogue or comment, save for verses from a sonnet by John Keats, Fridrik Thor Fridriksson links the thoughts, the emotions, the sensual longing of young lovers at opposite ends of the world. A tone poem, a collage of sight and sound. Written by
Pollow'd upon my fair love's ripening breast,
To feel for ever its soft fall and swell,
Awake for ever in a sweet unrest
Still, still to hear her tender-take breath,
And so live ever â' or else swoon to death.
The problem with most short movies that come out under the title "Erotic Tale" is that they aren't really erotic with the thought is that some flesh and a sex scene makes it erotic. This one is an exception.
The tale tells of two lovers separated by nearly the whole globe (she a lighthouse keeper in remote Iceland, he a worker in outback Australia) who remember back to a time when they made love in a hot spring in Iceland.
The contrasting stories of what their memory of that day drives them to is as contrasting as the locations they are now in. The hot vs the cold, the day vs the night, light vs dark, but both bound by a desire for that day in the hot spring.
This tale is not only well filmed, and well scripted (the lack of dialogue helps the story), but provides sensuality and desire, a potent combination with regards to eroticism.
This story is truly deserving of the title "Erotic Tale".
