Javier Fesser has a very particular, cartoonish directing style, and this short movie, which has gathered a bit of a cult status in Spain, is probably the maximum expression of his radical approach. The best way to describe would probably be to say it's like a surrealist painting brought to life. A collage of characters, places, sounds and smells which interwaeave and collide with each other in a seemingly chaotic dance, but are really timed which such a sense of rythm that the piece has the coherence of a symphony, albeit one based on the absurd. Even the most seasoned of cinemagoers can't help but be caught off guard on first viewing this unique film. Other efforts by Fesser, although still retaining his skewered style, cannot match the manic energy of this one. Memorable.
