Un naufragio existencial - A very existential wreckage
5 August 1999 | by (Santafé de Bogotá, Colombia) – See all my reviews

In this movie Subiela´s art touches the deepest existential questions that a common person can have, it´s a sequence of images that brings the rememberings of the south american culture about religion, literature and knowledge of the very own latin american common self. A very good film
