Velocity Begats Oblivion
16 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recently saw this at the 2007 Palm Springs International Film Festival and it is one strange film. This film weaves out of reality and fantasy and present day to the past through flashbacks from it's very beginning that the viewer is playing catchup to a film that never really gets off the ground. This is the story of Olmo whose mother left his father when he was young and is brought up to believe she is dead. The father and son live under an Argentine dictatorship and live in a warehouse spending their days cataloging and archiving anything and everything from toys to chairs and a vast collection of subversive propaganda. After the father's sudden death, Olmo sets off in the real world with the help of a young woman he has met to Galicia, Spain clutching a postcard that his mother had sent from there many years before. Marcelo Schapces imaginatively directs with skillful cinematography from Angel Fernández but I wouldn't see it twice. I would give this a 5.0 out of 10.
