In this bloody melodrama inhabited by the Trabant ensemble, a star pianist, a deaf and mute zoo-keeper and a blonde vamp make passionate and hopeless attempts to establish feeling, connections and communication between one person and another in the realm of the erotic. In the film, the sex act is not only aggressive and savage, but also portrays animals as a pleasure-enhancing element. The sex is far beyond anything that is individual or personal, and the two men merely serve as assistants to the woman. In this stoic and romantic tale of degeneration, Marietta Méhes becomes an inimitable vamp, whose affectations, musical amateurism and sign-language exchanges with her deaf-mute husband (Andor Lukáts) give this unique work a rare intensity.
