Atypical Altman sci-fi effort. The stakes in "Quintet," a form of backgammon, are high--you bet your life. Set during the planet's final ice age. Newman and wife Fossey wander into a dying city and are invited to play the game, with Fossey losing quickly. Bizarre and pretentious, with heavy symbolic going.
