Some Regrets

Australia, 1971 (MIFF 1972)

Director: Brian Robinson

Fred exists in a room. He tries to alleviate, but without success, the narrowness of this environment, making use of TV, dreams, hysteria and violence. He dies and goes to heaven, which is even less attractive. He regrets not having found more pleasure and meaning in his earthly existence.
