Summary, etc.: After skirting the horrors of an unidentified war being waged in an anonymous countryside, a beautiful young woman takes refuge in a remote farmhouse where she becomes embroiled in the surreal domestic odyssey of a mysterious family. Evocatively shot by cinematographer Sven Nykvist, 'Black Moon' is a Freudian tale of adolescent sexuality set in a post-apocalyptic world of shifting identities and talking animals. It's a cinematic daydream like no other.
