Wow!
16 November 2005 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

I've seen this movie twice now. The film starts off peaceful, slow and awkward, but it's only a few minutes into the movie in which you start to realize: "What have I and the main character gotten into?".

The film takes on from that epiphany and does not stop, it's a constant feeling of anticipation, fear, irony, all mixed in with black humor.

A true masterpiece in my opinion, not only is the photography well done, hazy, bright; like you just woke up from a big operation; it also takes you into the recovering brain of this confused and well meaning character, with strange solutions to strange situations, her illogical logic made me really get into her head and... in a way understand what she "tried" to do.

The film is very resourceful also, I just realized that most of the movie takes place inside the home of the character Charles, and you never get bored or tune out.

I highly recommend it, try and get a hold of it or look for it in festival circuits, it truly is worth your while.
