Great writing, 12 September 2001
Author: xaragones from Barcelona, Spain

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!
