House Without Steps, The


Rental Format(s): 16mm

A sensuous woman, an angry artist, a mysterious puppet maker, suspicious townspeople, mischievous kids; these are the characters in THE HOUSE WITHOUT STEPS. The setting is contemporary Vermont, but it is Walter Ungerer's Vermont; the landscape, though beautiful and tranquil, is charged with an ominousness familiar to Ungerer films. Everything takes on a greater importance; time loses its boundaries. Through Ungerer's vision, people are transformed into inhabitants of a world that is at once ordinary and strange.
