Description by OLDIES.com:
New college graduate Stefan hitchhikes from Germany to Paris, where he finds the warm embrace of Estelle / an American expatriate and heroin addict. The two chase the sun to the island of Ibiza, where become entangled in a sordid relationship with the island's leading drug dealer. Made in the late sixties, Barbet Schroeder's (Barfly, Reversal of Fortune) directorial debut is a treatment of pleasure, pain, and tragedy that stands apart from other counterculture films. Shot by Academy Award-winning cinematographer Nestor Almendros (Days of Heaven), More realistically portrays the ideas and emotions that contribute to a lifestyle of destructive excess. After years of languish this relevant cult classic, featuring a soundtrack by Pink Floyd, is finally available for a new generation.
Their open lifestyle leads free-spirited young lovers down a tragic path. Soundtrack by Pink Floyd.
