Ufo Movie
1 June 2006 | by (Barcelona, Spain) – See all my reviews

Jose and Juan are two freaks that love UFOs, day by day, this love will became an obsession and the will think that they are really talking with theme. this will cause fear from their neighbours, as they don't understand these freaks. The movie is based on real facts: On 1972 two men committed suicide in Terrassa (a little industrial city of Spain), their note said: We belong to infinite. The movie is, maybe quite absurd, but is quite well done and it results funny; the gags are not stupid and the actors result as much pathetic as they want to be, not more, not less. It is short, so you have no time to be fed up of the film. The ending is unusual and unexpected, of course, very absurd. It is a movie for a Sunday afternoon when there's nothing more to do, but it is not bad.
