Four poetic variations on the search for love; four odd characters living out their daydreams: Game Little Gladys, The Gardener's Son, Princess Printemps, and The Aging Balletomane. Based on Broughton's own poems, this film blends image, music and verse in moods from the farcical to the elegaic.
"Lovely and delicious, true cinematic poetry." - Dylan Thomas
"The best film poetry ever made." - Willard Maas
