An indie film to admire whether you're into every day Venice (like me), art (Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights in the Prado of Madrid), an English art historian's comments on life as she dies from throat cancer, or a bit of skin (they are both very fit). This little indie film made in the ultra-realism style is extremely complex and moving but enjoyable. You can understand her trauma as a young woman faces death but wants to share everything she's learned and thought with the viewer and her lover. So she takes a romantic trip to the end enjoying every whim. Near the end she has a soliloquy on what has life become from thousands of years ago to modern life noting, "God has been replaced by entertainment".
