An unusual, fascinating, deceptively complex film - Variety

Isabelle Huppert plays Colo, the young heroine who loses the sight in one eye and endangers the other in a car crash while visiting friends in Australia. Then she meets Robert (Robert Menzies), who has been blind all his life, and they fall in love, bringing new meaning to their lives as they teach one another how to see. With a powerful soundscape and beautiful camerawork.
