Wanna know a real sad thing? This glorious, inimitable movie from 1976 has never been put on DVD and even VHS copies of it sell for about $50. It's a shame really. This is an important film, as important as Godard's "Weekend," or Bunuel's "The Exterminating Angel." So I had to be content to read the screenplay by director Alain Tanner and writer John Berger. The screenplay is joyful and brilliant but it only made me want to see the film again.
