"This pop song of a film has no human characters (unusual for Bill), just wintery Melbourne Gardens filled with B&W roses, water fowl and formal garden lines, with built-in Eisenstein theory.  Bill's camera cuts through the chill of winter and warms us with guitar chords.  Film ends ... still no people???  then Bill dedicates film to Fiona? .... is Bill in love?  or is this film 'just a funny stage I'm going through'?"
