An eye-headed frustrated poet falls in love with a blind cabaret singer
Rupert is a failed and frustrated post-punk poet who lives a pathetic solitary life. He works in a filthy library, and spends most of his days reading books and poems he wish he had written, and reciting his own versions of poems and quotations by Baudelaire, Byron , Rilke and Oscar Wilde, mixed up with Buzzcocks and Rolling Stones lyrics, loaded with self depreciation , surrealistic daydreams and a blind obsession for Rosetta , the cabaret singer.
Rupert struggles with his addiction to “Collyrium Delirium” and his absolute incompetence to come up with one decent rhyme.
“Rupert” is an anti-genre , surrealistic and heavy loaded criticism of violence against women infused in a story of blind love narrated by an eye-headed man.
