Quoting the program guide: "A series of men grope and kiss a woman to her obvious displeasure. Only another woman can redeem the situation." Again, as with the short At the River earlier in the day, if I hadn't read the program notes beforehand I would have had no idea what was going on or why. In this case, without the key contextual references, the film is nothing but disjointed images. Not recommended.
