    Extremely confused in intention and delivery, this is auteur cinema at its most disappointing. The poetic vision, except a couple of moments of poignancy, does not work as it is served badly by an inchoate script and meandering voice-over. Thus the infamous love-making scene is the least of the film's many problems as it wavers between sci-fi, critique of contemporary Greece, folk drama and splatter. Badly acted too.
