Storyline

"How shall I go about establishing contact?" The question is asked by the main character in the film's prologue, where a man is trying to teach a stone to speak. "You can if you want to, it is not difficult, make an effort!", he hisses to the stubborn stone which remains silent. Barcelona is the setting for this Mediterranean comedy. It consists of a number of separate episodes. Each episode has a title - Will-power, Wisdom, Honesty, Sincerity, Submission, Competition, Passion, Consensus, Egocentricism, Spite, Desire, Jealousy, Love, Trust and Doubt - each illustrated by an story where content and form go hand in hand. Written by Niklas Olsson <Niklas.Olsson@sfs.se>

Great writing
12 September 2001 | by (Barcelona, Spain) – See all my reviews

This movie is based upon the self-titled book from Quim Monzó, one of the best Catalan writers nowadays. If you enjoyed the film, I'd recommend you reading any of his books. Most of them are translated to English and are really enjoyable!
