Nominated for two Oscars, this simple but bizarre tale of entrapment tells the story of a man who misses his bus home after a day out on a remote stretch of coast. He is imprisoned by local villagers at the bottom of a sand dune, joining a woman who is forced to shovel the sand that threatens to engulf them.

Director Hiroshi Teshigahara builds an atmospheric, highly charged and sensual film, which features a brilliantly chilling, minimalist score by Toru Takemitsu.
