Peter Watkins films are the best.
Update: Here's someone's review from Netflix - 'This is a good movie but unnecessarily complicated with flashbacks, especially shots of children coughing up blood as they are dying of consumption many years ago in the artist's past life. I find it unpleasant to watch two people hugging and kissing when one of them has consumption (tuberculosis) and is coughing. It is just as bad when one is a parent and the other is a dying child. Anyone with good sense should know he should avoid contact with a contagious person, regardless of how much he or she may love him or her. I get the same unpleasant feel when watching the opera in which the gal is dying of tuberculosis and her boyfriend is kissing her. I guess that's La Traviata, isn't it?'
