Storyline

Director Dan Zukovic weaves together the bizarre story of a love triangle between an artist, a graphic designer, and their inspiring muse. Viscount Laris is an eccentric, modern-day dandy obsessed by the power of art and visual imagery to shape the behavior and destiny of the individual. Juxta, a striking young cosmetician absorbed by masks, makeup, and false identities, soon falls under Viscount's idiosyncratic influence. Together they plot an elaborate game where they seek to influence the behavior of Ed Smith, a harmless and complacent graphic designer, through a meticulously planned series of staged visual events. Smith himself is unaware that these 'visual events' are manufactured and he soon becomes obsessed by Juxta, the mysterious woman he associates with these 'charged images'. As the game progresses, Viscount's experiments grow sinister and cruel. Juxta, having fallen for Smith, decides to turn the tables on Viscount.

Quotes

Viscount Laris: Everyday there are a handful of images that stay with us. We see them by accident or design, create them consciously, or unconsciously, some stay with us for a day or two... most are forgot in minutes, seconds.... and of those images, maybe there's one that sticks out beyond all the others... the most powerful image of your life.

Weird, weird, weird - in a good way.
10 July 2007 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

I caught this film during it's run at the Grand Illusion Theatre in Seattle, and it's a bizarre one. A twisted tale of a decadent art obsessed Viscount, an escort/make-up artist, and their competitive toying with a gullible graphic artist.

A risky cocktail of dense visuals and language, somewhat in the Greenaway/Lynch vein, but with an articulate black humor all it's own. The performances are highly entertaining, and the film manages an ending that is both surprising and inevitable, deeply tragic and weirdly hilarious.

Not for everyone, but a definite must for fans of different cinema.
