Pretentious, boring to death!
3 January 2007 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

I sat through the whole projection waiting for something interesting to happen, for the plot to take shape, for an interesting character to appear. It's the most boring, obnoxious and pretentious piece of film I have ever seen in my life. I don't know if the director tried to laugh in the audience face, if he did, he surely managed to. Don't waste your time, money or brain cells. The storyline is flat, completely devoid of interest. A never ending voice over tries to explain what action and dialog can't, without any respect to the viewer. As another critic said, it's like taking a crap. But not any crap...a long, painful and disgusting one. Even though the cast is great, the writer/director managed to turn them into unbelievable and uninteresting characters. Even the great Argentinian actor Ulisses Dumont plays a strange, uninviting cameo of himself. Please, don't bother watching this bore.
