Cast: Mimsy Farmer, Heinz Engelmann

This dark tale, based on a true story, follows the naïve Stefan (Klaus Grünberg) in his pursuit of off-beat American Estelle (Mimsy Farmer) to the island paradise of Ibiza. He leads a seemingly idyllic life with her by the sea - where the scenic beauties and delights of LSD and nude sunbathing are reflected by Nestor Almendros' stunning photography - before succumbing to the destructive trappings of heroin addiction. Famous for its subdued, moody Pink Floyd soundtrack.
