"I discovered Walerian Borowczyk's GOTO, ISLAND OF LOVE in the seventies at my high school's film club between an Ingmar Berman and a Stanley Kubrick movie. And since then, I never had the opportunity to see it again. But I've always remembered the strange atmosphere of GOTO with the concerto of Haendel playing on Glossia's tearful face.
Cult Epics had the great idea of releasing GOTO on DVD, adding as bonus feature "Les Astronautes", a short film directed by Borowczyk and Chris Marker in 1959. I was happy to see that the movie ages well and that my memory hadn't added to it the faked beauty of the souvenirs. So I can't but advise you to discover GOTO and his strange characters whose names are Gono, Gonasta, Grozo, Gurto and even Grymp.
A DVD zone lost in time."
