This is an unusal love story between Mario, a young man from the city, who despite his age has already failed in life, and a country-woman from a small village in the provinces who is disenchanted with life. Wanting to start life afresh, Mario flees to the countryside and ends up on a mountain farm that belongs to Ms Gusenleitner and her father, who gives him work as a farmhand for bed and board. For the first time in his life, Mario comes to experience love and sexuality without hate and dependency. However, he fears that his idyllic life will be short-lived when his past catches up with him.Written by

I saw this film about 8 years ago, and it has stayed with me vividly, not many films make that kind of impression on me. Most memorable are the many stunning, often surrealistic visuals throughout the film. The plot and characters are psychologically intriguing and complex. It's the kind of film that could stand to be watched several times, unfortunately I was able to see it only once so far. It's an Austrian film directed by a native Iranian who is also a neurologist. If I remember correctly the director makes a cameo, as he often does in his films. I believe this is his finest work, though many of his films, that I've seen are wonderful. The screenplay was written by his son. I highly recommend this film and that's not only because my uncle made it.
