It is a dreamy lovers-on-the-run movie in which a wayward couple begs, borrows and steals for a ticket to France. It does not provide a direct route, instead using associational editing and lush, intense colors to create a vibe and atmosphere of escape. . . . Abandoning cinematic realism, Mambety instead opts for a warping of time in an editing scheme that emphasizes mood over lucidity.
