Storyline

Enrique is a common man that has always worked to offer an acceptable level of life to his family. But one day this average man buys a television to color, a personal pleasure that a while ago comes deferring. Starting from that moment Enrique lives obsessed by the small screen, forgets what happens to his surroundings and finishes losing the power of differing between the real world and the universe of fiction, while his relatives look at he impotent.

A great short
28 April 2001 | by (Canary islands, Spain) – See all my reviews

"El televisor" was a special episode of the tv series "historias para no dormir" but it was a flop. This episode was the 1st one in colour and was completely different to previous ones. "El televisor" y "la cabina" are the best examples of the great imagination of Spanish TV in the 70's. It was a pity audiences didn´t appreciate that. As well as in "la cabina", this tv short film ends with a shocking and unexpected ending which leaves us breathless and scared of turning on the tv. This is probably the best Chicho Ibañez Serrador has ever directed. Special mention also to the cast. Not to be missed
