A bacchanalia is taking place before a windmill back lit by a cloudy and hazy sun. The windmill's sails sweep above a drunken and reveling crowd. Half naked women dance. Children watch a pipe band. Couples rush passionately off into the surrounding woods. A truly fantastic setting. (Jim Hahn 11/10/94)
