Halcion is the title of the most recent work from Austria’s most productive film studio – that of Dietmar Brehm. Thus the film is named after a sleeping pill which, as Brehm explained in a letter, ”induces pastel coloured dreams and watery images”. Its appearance leaves little doubt that a key to the film lies in its title: we are given to see the vision of a dream that has coagulated to film. All the material Brehm brought to bear was culled from his 6-part cycle ”Black Garden“. (Peter Tscherkassky)
