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).

A short film to make other beginners jealous - and inspired :-)
22 September 2000 | by (Alkmaar) – See all my reviews

I thought of this as "The Incredible Hulk" written by Niels Bohr. I don't mean that as a flippant comment, but to show the beautiful balance of seriousness and playfulness in the film. The filmmaking is of a different order here than most low budget, indie films. Andres clearly understands the language of film, and uses it to great effect. The acting performances are also very impressive - this isn't just a case of getting any old friends into roles and not worrying about whether they can act. Great fun that makes an impact, emotionally and intellectually - what more can you ask of a movie? (Oh, and I only gave it a 9, because there are a few technical issues that require a bigger budget, which hopefully he'll have for the next movie)
