Critics reviews

Among the occasionally crackling soundtrack and dust-bruised images, the most notable thing about the black and white movie was that it was now cast in reds. For whatever reason, this copy of a bizarre erotic fantasy was printed on color film stock instead of black and white. Clearly unrepresentative of Carle’s initial vision, there still lies a beauty in this unintended version as the red colored image lends warmth to the cold environment and intense sexual love affair.
