"In this Brueghel or Bosch cloacked in a 19th century tail coat, characters "à la Boltanski", infinitely coupled to their either seemingly trivial or simply absurd chores, at once mobile (in grinding jerks) and frozen in a sort of infernal eternity, meet in various parts of an unidentifiable location, on and around, it seems, an immense experssionist staircase which leads, nevertheless, to a final luminous irradiation.
This film, programmed non-stop in a Tokyo cinema for nearly ten years (as was Cocteau's Blood of a Poet, has reached cult status among amateurs of a most deeply disrupting and bewitching cinema." (Dominique Noguez)
