A sequence of holiday snapshots serves as the basis for a very unreliable narration – or perhaps more than one, as the English subtitles seem suspiciously at odds with the French voiceover. Is that really a caravan park in Israel? And is that man posing by the cliff really about to plunge off the edge in a near-fatal accident…?
“These flawed and rickety claims to reality are a sham leaving us feeling not so much cheated as sad for the hapless naiveté of their collapsing delusions.” – Roy Exley
