"A group of bored students are wiling away the hours at a club called "Eden", doing silly things like staging pseudo Russian roulette encounters, when suddenly they meet up with a mysterious stranger who offers them a way out of their boredom, with descriptions of Africa and a powder called something like "powder of fear". The leader of the gang (the quite lovely Catherine Jourdan) takes the powder, and the rest of the movie might be interpreted as her hallucination: rampant s & m imagery, tribal dances in the Middle East, her friends now seen as enemies, and a decrepit factory belching out odd effluent."--IMDB, viewed May 3, 2010

Entonces, las imágenes de la inmolación, ocurrida años atrás en Hiroshima, se amalgaman con las de una Nevers (Francia), completamente melancólicas. Son dos cuerpos sí, pero también son el espíritu de esas dos ciudades. Son el espíritu de dos ciudades, sí, pero también la experiencia individual de dos amantes que dialogan entre el mundo de las ruinas y la esperanza de la reconstrucción."--Envase
