“A daring experimental work in which Skolimowski, relying on a form of cinema that eludes any label or classification, intends to speak of a generational malaise, a searing sense of restlessness in the face of a reality that appears immutable. The older generations, cynical and selfish, have condemned the new ones to a lifeless patriarchal society that the Polish filmmaker (this was his third film) seeks to exorcise through creative inspiration, claiming a vitality that is expressed in the love for cinema (with obvious tributes to Fellini and the French Nouvelle Vague), visual invention and the capacity to mitigate the tone with a keen and stinging irony. A veritable waking nightmare, surprising and stimulating, one of the finest examples of cinema that can break through established patterns, unconventional without ever being a self-referential or tortuous exercise in style”.
