Details

Evoking comparisons as various as Lynch's Eraserhead, Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, Alexander Sokurov's cinema, and Hieronymous Bosch, 'this mesmerising feature creates a labyrinthine, Kafka-esque halfworld of chambers and baroque, macabre characters, all connected by a central staircase. Visually stunning.' - Aurora, 2008

'Dubbed 'the artist-alchemist of celluloid' avant-garde filmmaker Patrick Bokanowski's legendary opus defies all categorisation, in its unique combination of experimental cinema, photography, animation and painting. 'Blending different media and concepts about filmmaking in challenging new ways, rather than alienating, it remains thoroughly dazzling and engaging. - Benjamin Ettinger, Anipages

'Magisterial images seething in the amber of transcendent soundscapes. Drink in these films through eyes and ears.' - The Brothers Quay Evoking comparisons as various as Lynch's Eraserhead, Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, Alexander Sokurov's cinema, and Hieronymous Bosch, 'this mesmerising feature creates a labyrinthine, Kafka-esque halfworld of chambers and baroque, macabre characters, all connected by a central staircase.
