Is it a parable about noble savages and the crushed spirits of city dwellers? That's what the film's surface seems to suggest, but I think it's also about something deeper and more elusive: The mystery of communication.

Roeg intercuts images of modern life with the lushness of nature -- offering a stunning fable about the importance of respecting the earth.
