MOVIE SUMMARY

Ana, a young songwriter and piano player, lives alone with her father in a large house on the island of Madeira. She meets a boy and they plan to marry. However when she tells her father of their intentions he tries to persuade her to call off the wedding. With the help of her aunt, Ana continues with her plans and one day her expensive wedding dress is delivered. Ana puts on the dress and runs happily through the house to find her father. Entering his study she sees, reflected in a mirror, her father hanging by a rope. He has killed himself.

Ana leaves the island for the mainland and gets a job playing with a jazz band. However, she is haunted by visions of her dead father calling to her from beyond the mirror, summoning her to murder any man who gets close to her. Gradually the mirror world takes over Ana’s life until she can no longer separate fantasy from reality.

With a stunning performance by Emma Cohen as Ana, this was one of Jess Franco’s most unusual and personal films. This is its first ever US release and a world premier on Blu-ray.

REVIEWS

It has everything one is looking for in a Franco-Picture: the jazzy soundtrack, the nightclub scenes, the surrealism, and the beautiful women. Adrian; Letterboxd

A harrowing psychodrama of the downward spiral of a young woman (Emma Cohen) into madness and murder. Brilliantly acted, scored and directed. Robert Monell

Has acquired the well-deserved reputation of being among Franco's most unique and ambitious films, and one of the finest productions of his most fertile period. Tim Lucas
