Trivia

Useche explained to a Colombian newspaper that the title Vana Espuma comes from an expression used in the 1619 play Fuenteovejuna that he found echoed in the Spanish translation of Freud's book On Dreams. In the introduction, Freud talks about other scientists who discouraged his work on this subject saying that dreams are "Schaum" (froth) a word which translated into Spanish as vana espuma (Idle Mist).

This is a good story with a really interesting support
14 November 2000 | by (Manizales, Colombia) – See all my reviews

There are two relevant points I would like to write about Vana Espuma. In a country in which movie is not the best artistic expression, so there are not important directors, it is really good finding a very young artist who has developed a specific project. Useche has supported his tale through many scientific facts and carried it out playing such a big number of roles (actor, director, writer,...). In the other hand, we can think this is one of those kinds of films that are only produced by a great imagination, but if you read the Vana Espuma's support as well as its background , you will find a very interesting study about philosophy, physics and even psychology, which allowed Useche to build a complete project and to take his film out of the group of common Colombian films.
