Visitor Comments
Ian Douglas: Aimed at the art crowd, the film is period-stylish, but the motivations of the characters don't really make sense, which of course is perfect for creating a tradegy. The ending was disappointing and inconclusive. Liv spends the movie looking moody and dreamy, while Ralph scowls and sulks around as usual.

Neill Venter (33): Beautiful scenes and costumes, but not much of a storyline. At the end of the movie you tend to wonder, now what was that all about?
