In this supernatural-themed romance, a German woman in the between-wars period is being initiated into some kind of esoteric/psychic order and learns at that time that her ideal mate won’t even be born for quite a few years.

An extremely ambitious film in terms of genre experimentation, it successfully fuses romance with chilling politics during the WWII era. Delaive, Valley and Tripi are excellent and Marketaki executes the somewhat overlong story with flair and atmospheric passion. Even if production values are a bit low at points and even if the film imitates dangerously the neo-pagan ideology it criticizes, its impact is undeniable.
