Juraj Herz's extravagantly hallucinatory Gothic horror story is often described as the last film of the Czech New Wave. Based on a short story by Aleksandr Grin, the film tells the story of two sisters: the sweet-natured and beautiful Klara and the ugly, bitter Viktoria (both played by Iva Janzurova). Viktoria, consumed with jealousy, wreaks revenge on her more popular sister by gradually poisoning her until she begins to lose grip on her sanity.
