'60s hedonism takes a young couple from Paris to Ibiza

Barbet Schroeder’s (Single White Female) debut hasn’t worn well.

Set at the fag-end of the flower-power ’60s, it’s a riot of drugs, partying and psychedelic shirts.

German student Stefan (Klaus Grünberg) hitches his way to Paris, where he falls in with American waif Estelle (Mimsy Farmer).

The pair head for Ibiza where they sink steadily deeper into helpless junkiedom.

Schroeder directs ploddingly, and Farmer comes across as a cut-price Jean Seberg, but the film’s chief liability is Grünberg’s grumpy, dislikeable Stefan.

Extras include a rambling Making Of.
