Unless audiences love Strindberg or are fascinated with avant-garde performances, this documentary on Strindberg's play about a man who dies will not be exceptionally absorbing. Star Alain Cluny is shown both on and off stage, as he performs the play and prepares for his role. On the stage Cluny sits at a table and reads from a script while images are projected on screens next to him, figures enter and exit silently, and sets are exchanged behind him. The story itself deals with a man who goes to the island of the dead with a lot of questions he wants answered.
