Gulf Stream Under the Iceberg Film Poster


Golfstrim Pod Aysbergom Submitted for best foreign film (Oscars) from Latvia 2012, this sumptuous epic is based on ancient Oriental legends set in 3 different periods. Inspired by the works of Anatole France, the myth of Lilith represents the eternal drama in the relations of Man and Mother Nature, insatiable in her desire to give birth and destroy. This erotic fairy tale - Lilith traveling through time and space and her "sweet" and damaging mission - is based on ancient Oriental legends, the Talmud and the medieval books of Cabala. Adam's first wife Lilith according to these sources was not created from Adam's rib like Eve, but from clay like he himself. Nevertheless Lilith was not recognized by Adam as his equal and left him after a quarrel heading for Babylon where pre-Adamians lived. She has no soul, and she is immortal. Lilith assumes different names, can change her appearance, and takes possession of men against their will. Once it's accomplished, she leaves her victims forever, marking them for either spiritual or physical death. Whatever she does, it is neither Good nor Evil. She is made of an altogether different matter. The film consists of three interrelated stories: "Escape" (1664, Hanseatic League); "Loss" (1883, Russian Empire/France); "Aberration Feelings" (1990, Latvia). (Subtitles) Russia/Latvia Yevgeni Pashkevich 125m
