A modern love fable set in rural New Zealand. Beautifully filmed with music by various
Russian composers, performed by the Moscow Symphony, which adds to the surreal
composition of this unconventional film. Lucinda, worrying about the love between she and Rob,
decides to put Rob through a series of tests. When things get out-of-hand (don't they always),
Lucinda is determined to correct the mistakes before she loses her one true love. If it seems
a bit choppy with some rough edges - it might be due to a very low budget and director Sinclair's
preference for having only outline scripts and filling-in as they go. Somehow it seems to work. Recommended.
