A beautiful woman arrives on a god forsaken island awaking suppressed emotions.
This is a dark, surreal story of life and imminence of death,directed by the masterful hand of Zivko Nikolic. This is also a harsh political satire about absence of a clear vision and goal in the former Yugoslavia, expressed in the allegory of a floating island and its doomed inhabitants.Although made in 1977, its message is universal and can be applied to many contemporary events. A beautiful woman arrives on a god forsaken island and brings excitement and breath of fresh air in the lives of the locals. She awakes suppressed passion, hatred, love and fear,turning upside-down otherwise boring and monotonous island routine. The film is an intelligent and well crafted story about human soul, placed in an unidentified Adriatic island with Montenegrin schmeck.
