"Here Bill uses
Mozart as a counterpoint to B&W, beautifully overexposed color, shots
of streets, visual puns (Mobil/moon). There are no actors, no spoken words
to clutter things up. Bill has often explored and reflected his world
through character and dialogue. Here there are no such vehicles. This
is how it should be. Reflective, moody, subjective and romantic."
QUOTE AT HEAD
OF FILM: On love and the immortality of the soul: "The desire of love
is not for immortality but for the eternal; and the eternal is not something
that depends upon the survival of any individual soul, whether our own
or another's. The eternal is something which can be realized in one single
moment; something which completely destroys in us any desire for survival
after death; something which reconciles us to existence considered
in the light of love alone; something that does not assume anything
at all about the universe, except that love exists."
