Description: The story is an allegory of Adam and Eve, in a modern(made in 60’s) Health Retreat. The action involves our heroin wandering the grounds where she becomes obsessed with a mysterious man in red, who may or may not be a killer. What follows is a fragmented story of awakening, it’s pains and pleasures, but don’t look more literally than that, like Lynch’s Inland Empire, it’s best to view this film topologically(on the surface)
