taking dialogue excerpts from the works of Raymond Chandler (The Big Sleep ), Philip K. Dick (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?; Ubik ), Daphne du Maurier (Rebecca ) and Herman Raucher (Summer of 42 ), the story poetically evolves in front of our eyes with a truly nightmarish, dystopian fashion and an unusual thriller element added for good atmospheric measure.

That this masterpiece is so unknown undistributed throughout all the world, as far as I know, besides Greece is nothing short of criminal. In terms of tone, its most comparable to a slower, more elegiac Blade Runner theres the same pervading sense of despair, of a deep, dark curtain coming down on the world. propast, imdb
