The title of my text may give you the impression that i disliked this movie...Untrue!!! It's the best Spanish movie I've ever seen!
The great highlight of this "complicated" movie (it's full of nonsense) is the introspective point of view of the main character Angel, who judges himself a complicated person. Indeed he is! And who's not?
In this movie you share every thought (and even hallucinations) of Angel. At first sight, his thoughts may seem to be a bit weird for you, but for sure your deep thoughts would be weird for me as well. So what we have in this movie is a nice trip inside Angels head... And although I felt sometimes that Angel's completely insane, I couldn't help to identify myself with him sometimes...
So, if you're a great fan of movies with a "well-established" plot, with "good guys" and "bad guys", and in which everything is crystal clear, just don't waste your time with this movie. But if you're not, then let yourself go deep into the tierra.
