Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Marienbad, the central European spa resort, is immortalised in the romantic imagination for its legendary doomed love affairs - Goethe and Ulrike von Levetzow, Chopin and Marie Wodzinska, Edward VII and Mizzi Pistl, Franz Kafka and Felice Bauer. In a Marienbad winter, within its ambience of history and allusion, theatre and illusion, a modern pair of lovers look for the cure that eluded all their famous precursors. Echoing the déjà vu of Alain Resnais' classic movie 'Last Year at Marienbad', they track the pristine forest snows in pursuit of answers to questions that all lovers have sought throughout history. Mysterious and evocative, tantalising and erotic, White Shadows explores the qualities of love and obsession.
