Format: DVD
Oscar lives in a nightmarish world where he imagines himself a killer of his sister who may be black or white. It is a 19th century world with an odd old fashion view of Africa. Oscar is a museum Entomologist. The sun shines for only 15 seconds a day.

This is an art house style film. I thought it was heavy into metaphors such as insects representing the final stages of death on a dying planet etc. However in listening to the director's commentary it was not that sophisticated. It was a disjointed film by design with no real meaning other than it was like a dream, a mirror with broken pieces, a kaleidoscope. In other words, the director created images with little or no regard to plot, continuity, or symbolism hoping the audience will like it.

Good luck. My plebeian advice is to watch "Dark Knight Rises" instead.

Guide: Nudity. 3 stars for messing with my head.
