Just saw it in Showtime and still quite taken by the overall experience of the music, cinematography, plot, and mood of the film. Had to look it up on-line immediately because I had never heard of it or the director or writer. The acting has some spotty moments (few) but the story builds steadily and grippingly to the denouement. Taken as an integral whole, this is an unusually entertaining film. A fable of guilt and redemption.
This picture deserves cult status. In particular, the music weaves in and out of the drama, adding a wonderful emotional aura to the developing suspense. Yet I was completely unfamiliar with the composer as well as the other non-acting principle artists in the credits. A delightful surprise for my evening viewing.
