Storyline

On stormy night in an ugly urban landscape, Ciro Norte, a scientist with wild hair and thick glasses, straps himself to a chair he's has fashioned with wires: lightening strikes, convulsing him. It seems his experiment has not worked. The next day, he drives his jalopy to a bar, sits alone, and weeps. But suddenly, a vortex sucks him into a dream state where he wanders, escapes man-eating fish, confronts his doppelganger, walks through a field of giant flowers, and comes upon Venus herself, buried up to her shoulders in sand. She is a giant, and she takes him to her breast. He wakes from the vortex, back in the bar, his mood transformed. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Surreal, good looking short
9 February 2002 | by (Lelystad, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Axel Jodorowsky, son of the legendary Alejandro Jodorowsky, plays a scientist which makes a machine to do something with his mind. At first it looks to fail, but a few seconds later you're thinking that there might have been heavy drugs in your drink.. It's confusing, surreal, abstract, and looks great. It looks like a picture you made as a child of pictures out of the newspaper. None of the effects have been done with a computer, and that's the charm of it..

This is a movie that you really love or hate.. You can't just 'like' it.
