| an overlooked pearl
this movie glorifies maria de medeiros and her acting capabilities. it makes you feel the characters, you are sunken within the photography of it, within the beauty of maria, closeups of her face, glittering of the tears in her eyes and her fragility. it is based in a dream-like city surroundings within a fictitious family of two brothers and a suicidal sister.

can brothers be strong enough to protect the sister from herself? can their love be big enough to fight the opposing dark powers in her mind? instead of stability and normality the three of them soon connect to their own circle of pathological interdependence. you envy them for their relationship, even though it's sick. as far as i am considered, this movie is one of my favorite ever. there is not strongly structured story, the movie is grounded more on expressionistic scenes.

i've only seen it once, but it stays inside of me for years, i frequently remember it. i doubt you can leave the theater without being really touched inside after seeing it. i am absolutely amazed by how little attention it got worldwide. and - no comments on IMDb after all these years? wow. this cannot be true? even though the movie is dark and a bit depressive, it is also subtly cathartic. it will not put you in a bad mood, yet it will awake something melancholic inside you, something you 've forgotten exists there.
