It starts on a ship bound to a small almost deserted island.

The two leading actors, two young boys discover an almost abandoned warehouse.

It's getting dark and from then on their imagination is running wild.

It's breathtaking as the film is sometimes moving very fast backwards and sometimes forward.

That's the speed of light 'zoomed in'.

There was a lot of fun when it came out about a rape scene. I'm not sure why.

The real or imaginary people living there, a gangster and his girlfriend are rolling around on the floor.

She is not very happy about it but they are still going out together. It's hardly criminal.
