Storyline

Amidst a wild flat meadow encircled by an Edenic lush forest, a couple has cocooned itself in a secluded grand mansion that was not so long ago burned to the ground, devotedly restored by the supportive wife. Within this safe environment, the once famous middle-aged poet husband is desirous of creating his magnum opus, however, he seems unable to break out of the persistent creative rut that haunts him. And then, unexpectedly, a knock at the door and the sudden arrival of a cryptic late-night visitor and his intrusive wife will stimulate the writer's stagnant imagination, and much to the perplexed wife's surprise, the more chaos he lets in their haven, the better for his punctured male ego. In the end, will this incremental mess blemish irreparably the couple's inviolable sanctuary? Written by Nick Riganas

dear god what a mish mash of trash
4 October 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

first off let me start by saying I was looking forward to watching this film after all the mysterious hype. the acting is forced and without sense of direction, the structure of the film is totally confusing and at times annoyingly so. the story line is so pretentious it is bordering on offensive. not to give anything away the basic story is of a couple who have uninvited guests of varying annoyance ,well that's the films story in a nut shell. save your money and read a book from the bible its a lot less confusing and annoying total and utter waste of talent because these are talented actors and deserve better and so do we.
