Slightly absurdist film about an opera-goer. An enjoyable evening is out of the question, because he is haunted by obsessive thoughts. Adapted from Louis Couperus’ short story.
His opera glasses, a luxury article he just purchased especially for the opera while he could barely afford one, land him in one tricky situation after another. Or is his fantasy playing tricks on him? Modern adaptation of Louis Couperus’ eponymous short story from 1920.
