Look back at the leading ladies of the s who made their mark with iconic roles and some major hairstyles, too. See the gallery. A runaway bride and an eccentric vagrant embark on a surreal journey in a twisted world reflecting 60s pop culture, sex, and politics. Psychedelic drugs have the effect of causing people to see things differently and to question what seemed to be obvious truths. But when art is produced as a simple re-creation or reflection of the ephemera released from the brain as a result of the ingestion of novel psychotropic chemicals, I find it often soulless, as in this case.

Do you still have the tapes? If so, please write to me. From Dott. The That was the best material available. Just enjoy it. If you really feel compelled to gripe, then help out with a proper restoration, and cross your fingers and hope that the master elements still exist somewhere.

A young bride escapes her wedding ceremony with a stranger and together they set off on an epic journey though increasingly bizarre lands. They encounter talking animals and mournful exhibitionists, converse with a discoursing rock, journey through a surrealist's psychedelic hotel, instigate a prison riot, escape from naked cannibals living in a tree and battle a wind-up midget dictator! Tina Aumont Gigi Proietti. I've wanted to see this for over a decade, because- in her wedding dress, white face, and black eyes- Tina Aumont looks like some kind of proto-goth, and I'm down with that.
By bus, by car, and by foot, they stumble into one bizarre situation after another. They tour a sex motel, are captured by philosophical hippie cannibals, she gets raped by soldiers, he is put in front of a firing squad, they meet a midget Napoleon, free the prisoners of a hippie penitentiary, and attend an orgy in the London tube station before Anita returns to the real world or does she to race head on to her destiny prompting the titular howl. Its social criticism is more emotional than intellectual and the cast play it with total conviction and abandon Aumont is just as willing to doff her clothing as the many hippie extras and exhibitionist performance artists and Fiorenzo Carpi's score is as manic as the situations in the film.
