Here we have a game, filmed in black and white. Licentious girl is exposing her calf and then she's running away, smiling, to a meadow. There's no lust. For us, it's a comical situation–the film is speeded up a little bit.
In the serious middle section, we expect fun again and we're not disappointed. The music goes fast forward, slows down; it tries to astonish us but it's never enough. We want our heroine back.
