Themes
--the beach
--contrasting black and white
--lighthouses
--nudity
----both male and female
--oral sex
----though unlike the scene in Ken's Lair of the White Worm, this (IMHO) lacks the eroticism of that scene.
--productions
--sailor costumes
--trains

And I am sure there are others. These are just the ones that I noticed.

Next time: Interesting. Very interesting.

After watching the film, I agree with Iain's criticism that Martinu's compositions are not justly used, and that any bit of stock music could have blended with the imagery just as well.  Which of course is crazy considering Ken's usual brilliance of combining image with music.  I guess even the best can have an off day.  Still I found the visuals quite compelling and at the end I was moved by the story.  Definitely worth seeing.
