Storyline

An established poet is trapped in an asylum by two crazy doctors in competition over diametrically opposed schools of thought. One believes in a "classic" method where the other promotes a "revolutionary" metaphysical approach to treatment. The poet yearns for freedom: to live and create but his hands are literally tied. Escape is a must. He befriends a compassionate nurse who falls in love with him. As the story evolves reality shifts where people die and then resurrect. Through her emotional strength and courage the nurse attempts to rescue the poet from a fatal future taking us on a poetic journey with a twisted but enlightened ending. Written by Igor Stephen Rados

An interesting experiment, started quirky in a good way but wore down
27 July 2018 | by kmashintSee all my reviews

The concept was interesting, and it started out in quirky way that reminded me of something between The Lobster and Shutter Island, but then wore down with over-the-top acting, and some strange scene transitions and dialogue and plot that didn't string fully together.

There were some interesting camera angles and concepts along the way, and it's not that I could do any better at any particular aspect, but in broad comparison to other films it seem more an interesting experiment.
