The schizophrenic cinema of Werner Schroeter. Double your pleasure for Isabelle Huppert fans, as there are two of her in this picture. Tour de force performances by both of her!!! Great costumes, locations and multiple fantasy death scenes. Also the best trained fox I have ever seen act in a film.
Schroeter builds a muse movie with the best of Rupert in this one: body, eyes and tears. Sailor: there's no territory without leaving territory. True - and Deux travels by opera, performance and cinema with ease. The sailor also says: I wish I could write on this dying fish's place, to take language to its limit. Well, Schroeter, you took language to its limit and you did it on the most poetic way.
