Daring and memorable...
9 June 2012 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Dreamlike and otherworldly in many ways, this was a fascinating film - and I remember it from watching it 25 years ago. Amazing set design, excellent acting and great writing and direction. I was also impressed by the memorable musical track, including source recordings, for example in the cafe scene. My only complaint is that I would like to see it again, which has proved very difficult...

Has this film ever been released on DVD or any other media? I remember it from it's run in the US on Channel Crossings on PBS, but have not been able to find it anywhere and would love to see it again.
