Senta, the daughter of a wealthy shipowner, tries to escape from the confines of her daily life to the realm of imagination. There she meets the legendary, bold sailor, who conquered the seas but did not find any satisfaction, so that he was condemned to wander restlessly across the seas as the "Flying Dutchman". In her dream, Senta release him with her love. With this dream, she is given the strength to make sense of her real life. Renowned opera director Joachim Herz combines the romantic saga with a realistic plot. To illustrate the difference between the two narrative levels, the picture formats switch: Senta's dream sequences are distance shots, while the real action is shown in more narrow shots. “A peculiar film interpretation of a Wagner opera with excellent imagery and representation, with actors standing in for most singers."
