Film Description

Schroeder's dark directorial debut, More looks at sixties youth and drug culture and is famed for its score by The Pink Floyd.

Naive Stefan (Klaus Grunberg) hitchhikes to the promise of Paris where off-beat American Estelle (Mimsy Farmer) and quantities of sex and drugs help him to find himself. He follows her to the island paradise of Ibiza, where they lead a seemingly idyllic life by the sea - but heroin addiction plays an increasingly destructive part in their relationship.

Stunningly photographed by Nestor Almendros, the film is also famous for its subdued, moody Pink Floyd soundtrack, featuring some of the band's most spontaneous and eclectic work - including Green is the Colour, Cymbaline and The Nile Song.
