Having graduated college, Stefan hitchhikes from Lubeck, Germany, to Paris, France, where he finds the warm embrace of Estellean American expatriate and heroin user. Together, they chase the sun to the island of Ibiza where they develop even more interesting relationships with the islands leading drug dealer and a girlfriend of Estelles. Made in the late sixties, Barbet Schroeders (Barfly) directorial debut is a treatment of pleasure, pain and tragedy that stands apart from numerous counterculture exploitation films.
With Academy Award winning cinematographer Nestor Almendros (Days of Heaven), More never resorts to predictable LSD-induced stylistics, but rather atypically adopts a style of objectivity to illuminate the ideas and emotions that contribute to a lifestyle of destructive excess. After years of languish this relevant cult classic, featuring a soundtrack by Pink Floyd, is finally available for a new generation.
