More is a film directed by Barbet Schroeder, released in 1969 starring Mimsi Farmer and Klaus Grunberg, dealing with Heroin addiction on the island of Ibiza. It features a soundtrack written and performed by Pink Floyd.

Plot: It is the story of a German student finished with his studies who decides to have an adventure, get out of his conservative skin and to burn his bridges. He meets a free spirited American girl in Paris and follows her to Ibiza. But she is more complicated than he expected. He becomes jealous of her free lifestyle and takes her away where they can live alone. There she introduces him to heavy drugs.

This story is modeled on the myth of Daedalus and Icarus with the girl as the Sun.
