Barcelona, 1913. Alma is perhaps one of the most modern women of her day.Her husband, Dr. Leon Pardo, is a psychiatrist. This summer, he visited Vienna and became a follower of the revolutionary Dr. Sigmund Freud and his advanced theories about hysteria and sexuality. It all starts the afternoon Alma comes home and finds her husband in tears, about to disappear from her life and everyone else's. Giving no more explanation than a few incoherent mumbles, Leon runs off, leaving Alma alone and about to give birth. Salvador is Alma's brother-in-law and a psychiatrist as well. He is much more conservative man than Leon, is deeply in love with Alma. The only clue they have is a manuscript about hysteria and female sexuality based on four patients: An actress with a persecution complex; a psychotic woman who tried to murder her husband; a woman with a serious crisis concerning her sexual identity; a stranger who has discovered a terrible secret about her past. Following those signs, Alma and ... Written by
one of the best examples that prove what a movie must be!
This is the story of a woman (Alma) and a man (Salvador), who are sister&brother in law, who try to find Alma's husband (Leon) through Leon's psychiatry thesis. Firstly the movie has a real great package, it is really great fun to watch all the things to resolve, it does not bore the viewer so one can stay focused easily. the shooting is really great, there is a good consistency among the costumes, settings and other tools. the movie is really successful to create that times environment. Most importantly the package is not empty, it's full of very interesting characters, a very interesting detective story, very sharp criticism for today's world and lot's stuff about psychology and psychiatry; and also there are qualified stuff that makes you laugh sincerely. an unaware viewer about the subject learns really useful stuff about Freud, Jung and etc. Script of the movie is really successful, every minute you find something new to discover. Music is really fantastic. Actors are very successful while creating and playing the characters, it is real fun to watch them fly over the curtain. Through the whole movie you appreciate (or adore) the director (and also screenwriter), but the credits really prove that the director is a genius. The only problem maybe the some mimics and acts of the actors may look strange, but the reason is that Spanish (and also Italian) acting has some differences other than the acting that most viewers got used to. I hope you all watch and understand what i mean. You'll be grateful that such a movie exists after watching 'Inconscientes' (Unconscious). (By the way the love story in the movie is really in its dose and not that kind of cheap love story in 'Pearl Harbor', 'Titanic' or 'SW: Attack of the Clones'. I guarantee you'll be satisfied.) Have Fun!...
