| Intriguing blend of politics and psychoanalysis.
This film is an idiosyncratic and striking meditation on the links between the personal and political realms, between history and the promptings of the individual psyche. Only the surrealists have attempted this kind of synthesis before, albeit in very different terms. The film's impeccable anti-stalinist politics act as a timely corrective to those who believe that socialism died with the collapse of the Berlin wall. If you're interested in socialism, psychoanalysis or political history, this film is essential viewing. You'll never see another film like it!
