Set in 1973 Spain, a struggling encyclopedia salesman and his wife take advantage of an offer to make adult films. The act turns him into an aspring legit filmmaker and her into an international sex symbol.
A fascinating short, if you can get your hands on it.
Pablo Berger's short "Mama" is well-worth seeing, if only for its very unique style. Its an offbeat story, to be sure-- a family is forced to live in a basement after some kind of nuclear holocaust, and has to deal with an overbearing grandmother and a little boy who always wears a Batman costume-- but it is by no means inaccessible. It is also very very funny. An excellent short, as are Mr. Berger's others... so why have we never seen him helm a feature?
