Description
Schoenberg’s rarely performed one-act opera, a withering portrait of a suffocating bourgeois marriage, gets the Weimar treatment in Straub-Huillet’s staged film.

As the husband retreats into impotent sexual fantasy and his wife into aching loneliness — shades of Erich von Stroheim and Jacques Rivette — they are plunged into a mise en abyme of jagged atonal music and slashing crepuscular light.

Reviews

"Affords a rare opportunity to savor Schoenberg at his weirdest and to consider what he might have been up to." - The New York Times
