    Recommended!

    This is a classic fish out of water tale, but with a very engrossing plot...a specialist in nature films takes an assignment at an Italian giallo film, with unexpected results....the most interesting aspect is how the film shows the consequences of an assault on the senses..how this man is changed by the images and sounds he experiences on the screen, and is asked to produce....the acting is espacially fine. We don't see the images but we hear the sounds and descriptions of what the actors/technicians are seeing....and how the technicians cope with this.
