A very confusing movie.
16 April 1999 | by (Monterrey, Mexico.) – See all my reviews

This is an example of how a director's work can be seriously affected by the lack of practice. The main character's search for his own identity results into a confused and boring display of situations that, never the less, contribute to create an atmosphere of desperation. Not a circular history indeed, but either the scenes are told in an attractive way, so the end becomes as unexpected as the beginning of the movie.
