Someone would think that I did´t understand the movie...
8 October 2001 | by (Bilbao) – See all my reviews

Yeah, maybe I´m not so pedant as to feel satisfied with the film. The references to Buñuel´s movies are simply "too easy" to locate, perhaps because Saura is not interested in making people find clues but in making those people know how "cool" he is... Yes, I can recognize "Tristana", or "Viridiana", even "Un chien andalou", and so what. The film is boring. I thought, just before I watched it, then, if I were lucky I would see a mix between "Raiders of the Lost Arc" and "Shakespeare in Love", but I was mistaken. Nothing so great. Just another dull and unhappy attempt to imitate one of the chapters of "The Outer Limits". But not as funny and very much more pretentious. Alterio as Dali? Just awful. Lorca as a sissy afraid of his own poems... just horrible. And I prefer not to talk about the make-up and SFX. The whole movie is a good idea badly made. I was in the premiere, in The San Sebastian Festival, and could see Saura himself introducing the movie to the audience. Well, that morning the critics had been... "no mercy", you know... And I think he was just apologizing. You feel curiosity?... I did. Not worth to lose two hours of your life.
