FEATURING: Ekaterina Dar, Elizaveta Shulyak, Lilit Karapetyan, Diana Galimzyanova
PLOT: A gothic princess wishes to commit suicide, but a dastardly prince charming steals her rope.
The rope. The trolley. Trolley 54. Chthulu.
Flick-switch DIY? They can do, they can do.
A meaningless quest line jellies about.
Nonsense everywhere. No way out.
Where is this cryptic nonsense bound?
Who gave them a camera, or was it just found?
What’s with this denticulated review?
Why do you ask? And what’s it to you?
Stalin’s bust, a princess, a faerie, a door.
Interference lines dance on the floor.
A jaunty yellow crown. A scythe, tag-fresh glinty.
If only the French were this fun in the ’60s.
Fed black and white and sepia treats,
The perplexion’d sun faces hasty defeat.
Toss in drag, and mime, and some derelict sets—
This film makes no sense; and yet… and yet…

WHAT THE CRITICS SAY:
“…this film is not some sort of brainheavy meta movie or anything like that but a pretty mad comedy carried by humour reminiscent of Monty Python’s Flying Circus, held together exactly by the fact that nothing really holds the story together… A very unusual film for sure…” -Mike Haberfelner, Search My Trash (contemporaneous)
