Synopsis by Bhob Stewart

Rudolf Thome directed this German science fiction drama that's slightly reminiscent of Nicolas Roeg's The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976). Driving to Berlin, Luise (Cora Frost) and Theo (Tilo Werner) give a lift to the enigmatic blond Frank Mackay (Herbert Fritsch), and Luise is immediately attracted to him. However, time-traveler Frank is more interested in locating Laura Luna (Valeska Hanel), author of Tiger-Stripe Woman Waits for Tarzan, so he can take her to a future time when women have died off. Frank and Laura become a twosome, but then her apartment is mysteriously trashed, so they head for her father's remote hunting lodge where a menage a trois develops after Luise turns up (with Theo lurking about in the surrounding forest). Laura begins writing a new novel, Utopian Wife. Shown at the 1998 Berlin Film Festival.
