A huge, deserted country house is the setting of this dance film by director Willem van de Sande Bakhuyzen and choreographer Ed Wubbe, who jointly interpreted Gustav Mahler's masterpiece Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen. An elderly man relives an intangible love that, dancing through the corridors, keeps slipping away from the movements of the turning camera. Dance and camera movements blend with the various stages of Mahler's passionate song.
