Storyline

In order to regain custody of her daughter, whom she left in the care of her fortune-telling aunt, Mona must tell a social worker her story. The tale she spins---and the movie we watch---is a wild, surreal adventure in which people are able to project and enter each other's dreams, and our heroine is sold into slavery and lands in a swank, debauched Liverpool brothel where the patrons enact their literary/sexual fantasies with Lolita, St. Joan, and Desdemona. Rendered with dazzling tracking shots, striking CGI effects and a pulsing soundtrack, Hungarian director Szabolcs Hajdu's risk-taking fantasia has style to spare. But under the seductive surface lurks the very human story of a woman who uses fantasy to cushion the pain of life. Written by Los Angeles Film Festival

master piece.
19 June 2011 | by (Australia / China) – See all my reviews

I consider this a master piece! It is a rated adult fairy tale. It is a dream projected to the viewers.

It has distinctive story telling. The sound compilation and cinematography are both great. The film creates such an impact you either love it or hate it.

Sex and violence always catches viewers attention.But it has never been done this way!

The film is absurd and surreal. Director Szabolcs Hajdu is not afraid of taking the risk.And be who he really is! I haven't seen something raw powerful and original like this movie for a while.
