Carol Schneider (Carole Bouquet) leads an aimless life with her lover Alexander. Finding no possibility to express herself in the "outside" society, she moves on to an "inside" society - inside a lunatic asylum, that is! She prefers this world to the real world, despite its many terrors (one inmate even commits suicide), but she is unable to exist in either of them. Carole Bouquet, famous for Bunuel's "Obscure Object of Desire" and arriving straight from shooting the James Bond movie "For Your Eyes Only", played her most memorable role - a mad person in a mad world - in this tormenting vision of Werner Schroeter, who certainly was neither trying to make an accessible picture nor to avoid anything shocking. If you prefer something you still shall remember next year over the fast food flicks you have forgotten tomorrow, I think it is worth trying.
