Storyline

Johan (Carsten Frank) is a successful artist whose work is surreal and symbolic. One evening before returning home to his wife Rosa (Lina Romay), he encounters a woman (Fata Morgana) in a bar. The two knew each other in the past and she demands a meeting with him. We see in flashback the history Johan and the woman have - they were involved in a Sadomasochistic relationship twenty years ago before Johan achieved success. In fact it is revealed that the woman is the key to Johan's life now. We see that the woman made Johan make her a promise at the height of sexual torment. The deal is that in exchange for a successful life he would surrender his, at the time, unborn daughter to the woman. Johan's now adult daughter, Lucy (Carina Palmer)is unaware of the deal her father made. Johan's wife Rosa is terrified that the woman has now come to collect her daughter and Johan has to confront the woman, today, whether he likes it or not.

Dreadful!!
1 April 2004 | by Kevin MorrisSee all my reviews

If this piece of garbage was good enough to be considered an actual "movie" then it could easily be the worst movie ever made. It is so appalling from start to finish, with absolutely no redeeming features, that it is an insult to all of those people who make a serious effort to create real movies.

All aspects of the production of this "thing" are simply dreadful. The camera work is terrible, with neither technical nor artistic talent in evidence. No effort appeared to be made to add interesting lighting or even fill in the shadows. The sound track was downright annoying at times. And the staff, not good enough to be called a "cast", showed no ability to act.

What could have been an interesting plot was completely lost in the dreadful script. What could have been interesting erotica was reduced to a few shots of shaven pubic hair. And considering the staff were naked for much of the time, no effort appeared to be made to add make-up to a group of people who were not physically attractive enough for me to actually want to see them naked.

I must admit I watched the whole thing. I just couldn't believe someone would waste this much plastic to put it on a DVD.
