He cruelly beats her, leading to a confrontation that sets the young man down a path of revenge and madness. -- Chris Kavan

An incredibly bizarre tale of love, revenge and madness - it looks amazing but borders on the grotesque - if you're not afraid of clowns yet, you will by the end of of this film. It also portrays the horrors of war while balancing it against one of the most messed-up love stories you'll see. Not for everyone, but truly an experience.
