The film is obviously made as an art black comedy and though it has almost no plot it consists of highly surreal scenes roughly based on Salome by Oscar Wilde the main stress is made on the stupendous camera work. Oscar Wilde's symbolism in Visage is lifted to the level of paranoia. The director shooting the drama may also be considered as John the Baptist pay your special attention at his constant misfortune with water and episode with the man in bushes looks like an absurdist mockery of biblical rite of John baptising Christ. In the final scene however Salome dances not for King Herod but for the symbolically severed head of John the Baptist. "Ah! I have kissed thy mouth, Iokanaan, I have kissed thy mouth."
