“Doing casual work had made him learn how to be a fixer. As he moved about, he liked striking bargains, spruce himself up and catch any chances that came his way. He bartered goods against jobs, and job against goods, or, indeed, goods against goods and jobs against jobs. Wheeling and dealing created movement, life. It was his way of playing.”
Helmer, the vagabond, is a man with a keen eye for both women and cosmos.
One warm evening in June 1979, he said goodbye to his girlfriend, Judith. His plan was to work in a hippie-style collective, where he has been before.
He drives off across the mountain at night.
At first, the journey looks like a promising road movie.
But life turns out different: he is taken on a dark odyssey and soon Helmer’s soul is at stake.
"A man wipped out of his inner self. This is effectivelly portayed. Both deceitful and honest."
"An original and engaging tale."
