Synopsis

Morag is mourning the death of her brother, responsibility for which she attributes to the power-mad Giulia, leader of an isolated band of pirates who occupy a remote island castle. Morag vows revenge, enlisting the assistance of Erika, who operates as a piratic double agent.

Our take

Film critic Jonathan Rosenbaum has described this film from French New Waver Jacques Rivette as a fusion of female pirate adventure, mythological fantasy, Jacobean tragedy, experimental dance film, and personal psychodrama! This wildly risky film somehow seems unimaginable today.
