Set in a blazing land where the sun ceaselessly shines, this dramatic fantasy examines love's darker aspects. After years of incarceration as a political prisoner, Peter Glahn (Nigel Whitney, who had his name removed from the credits because another actor redubbed his lines) finally returns to Mandragora via ship. During the voyage, he encounters the glamorous Julianna (Pascale Bussieres), and falls deeply in love. Before he can act upon it, the radiant beauty mysteriously disappears. Once home

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
The line between romance and sex is blurred in this enthralling 1997 feature by Guy Maddin, whose overwhelming stylization unexpectedly produces an emotional and psychological authenticity.
It's an Aubrey Beardsley painting come to life by way of Maddin's unique rhythms, rich textures and surreal stories...
I found it to be a pretentious drag, but its redeeming quality was that it was so novel.
If you like Maddin's other works, you'll probably dig this. If you don't, this film will not convert you to the cause.
It's a surreal paradise where the summer sun never sets and the air is full of feathers drifting down from the Glahn family ostrich farm.
