Surrealist fantasies concocted supposedly from the mindless wanderings of a derailed adolescent. Churning through rol-play, comic-type brainlessness and the harrowing supposed reality of a couple of sexually-frustrated kids immersed in immature "macho" feelings, the story bounces back and forth without any more sense than cycling across the Sahara. Neus Asensi is all sexily dressed up in the style of all those dolls in video games, and all sorts of weird goings-on in subterranean caverns and such like is the backbone of anything that might be happening.
However, the special effects are extremely good: but that is precisely my bug-bear - I just cannot see much point in wasting celluloid on a load of FX with a story that has nothing to tell above the intellectual level of 14-20 year-old coke and potato-crisps experts and whose aims in life seem to have come to a stop in the classroom and the unemployed queue.
If you want to see Fernando Ramallo in something which makes more sense, see him with Antonio Resines in "Carreteras Secundarias"(qv): light-hearted but much more enjoyable for a wider audience.
Apart from that, if you do not belong to the aforementioned adolescent category, go elsewhere, read a book, go to bed, ring up your girl-friend, take a shower, give the dog a long walk, or do anything else which might occur to you.
