Gripping, mysterious
1 January 2000 | by NozzSee all my reviews

After watching the movie once or twice, I went looking for the book it was based on-- The Woman Who was Found Adrift-- but there seemed to be no English edition. The film seems to be about plain people enmeshed in a situation rife with symbolism, but it's hard to work out the symbols. Today, tricked too many times by meaningless David Lynch films, we might just assume that there is no underlying message; but the film is a little too old-- and a little too intelligent, I think-- to be a put-on.
