Storyline

In this surreal thriller, mysterious blond Marie March takes a journey to the town of Darckeville to scam a priceless set of antiques from an eccentric collector, but also to get away from the clutches of her overbearing older husband. On the freight train to Darckeville, fevered sensual dreams and dark childhood memories crowd her troubled mind - portentous omens of an unresolved past hurrying to catch up with her. Caz , a beautiful but psychopathic ex-lover from years ago has discovered her whereabouts, she is on a mission to fight Betrayal and defend those who have been hurt by "Love". She wants Marie all to herself, and if she can't have her then no one can. Set against a backdrop of fading dreams, broken aspirations, and the crumbling ruins of a decaying town coloured with strange characters, their separate paths collide with explosive results. Written by J.G.

unusual and fascinating
24 October 2006 | by zsredddtSee all my reviews

Saw this at Cinenygma, I didn't know anything about it beforehand, first and foremost let me say that this is anything but a mainstream movie, unlike the previous poster I didn't mind the nudity, it was beautifully shot. On that note, while it is true that some of the acting seemed a bit dry or cold, but the cinematography more than made up for that, some of the ambiances are totally hypnotic especially in the flashbacks, at times I felt like I was watching a Mario Bava or Dario Argento film.

The plot can however be confusing and I guess interpreted several different ways. But on the whole I strongly recommend this film to fans of unusual fantastic cinema or art films, the score by David Kristian (who worked on The Abandoned) is another bonus.
