Beautifully tragic film
31 July 2003 | by phlbrqSee all my reviews

I saw this in '78 and was very impressed. If memory serves, it had a theme similar to The Iceman Cometh that provided a disturbing emotional impact many will find depressing. I mostly recall a mood of bleak, sad, natural beauty. The cinematography is by Robby Muller now associated with Wenders and Jarmush.
