An anomaly in the canon of 70s films about sexuality and fascism due to its 1919, Baltic setting, black and white photography, and general lack of detached gallows humor. Amazing wintry landscapes when it goes outdoors
Sentimental sop once again arguing for the superiority of suburbanite WASPs; deeply racist undercurrent. The whole message of the film "don't desire a better life. just stick in your crummy dead town and sacrifice yourself for the vulgus"
