Set during the Bolshevik revolution, a Canadian soldier, a Belgian aviator and a Russian nurse, each overcome by mustard gas and the horrors of war, cannot remember who they are in love with.

What comes across is a fascinating fetishist delirium, where memories of remote war movies get recycled into something that's alternately creepy and beautiful.
Confused? No matter; so are the characters in this absurdist melodrama.
From its flickering, inky cinematography to its wavering late 1920's-style sound track, to Veronkha's kohl-eyed vampish look, the movie is an expert parody of a period movie style.
... a surreal silent movie melodrama of love, war, and amnesia for the sound era: an absurdist silent WWI epic that never was.
