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

I created an account literally to rate/review this movie
18 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

30+ years of watching movies and never created an account. That is how bad this movie was, it made me want to contribute to a lower rating. I would rate it negative 10 if I could. Anyone who tries to sell it as an allegory should never be allowed to review anything ever again. I respect everyone's opinions, but don't even think about trying to sell it with that justification. Literally the worst excuse for a movie ever. If you want to sit there for 2+ hours with WTF face, please see this movie.
