Time Out says

A largely loony but oddly compulsive allegory, taken from a John Cheever story, in which Lancaster, clad only in swimming trunks, makes his slow way home by swimming through various people's pools. Partly an obscure satire on the idle rich, partly an eccentric commentary on disillusionment and dreams, it is almost - but, importantly, not quite - nonsense. That said, it is totally engrossing, thanks to its very strangeness, and to the superb performances and the vivid location photography.
