CGiii Comment

At times, beautifully shot...but, rubbish nonetheless.

Perhaps, Dogme before Dogme.

Rather radical for its time but, there is no escaping its art-school student roots - the sound is piercing, the concept interesting, the execution incomprehensible.

Jakubisko went on to do bigger and better things - interesting for those interested in his development as a director - but, only for those who are really interested.
