Did You Know?


Óscar Faura, the second unit director of photography, had the main mission of shooting with freedom whatever he thought it was visually interesting, and not to worry about coverage, because the cinematographer Xavi Giménez was doing that. Faura carried an ear piece through which Banderas would told him to catch this and that. See more »

Pompous and boring
13 December 2006 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

I tried really hard to like this film, I promise. I enjoyed Crazy in Alabama and I like Banderas as a person. He is an interesting character. However, this film is a failure. Either that or I didn't get the point at all. Two hours of movie that feel like four, a disjointed script, some supposedly poetic images without any meaning and a bunch of wasted talented actors. It begins decently but as the plot unfolds it drifts away into a hopeless nonsense. I used to think that if I didn't understand a film it was my fault and I had to watch it again making an effort to really comprehend what it meant. Nowadays, I simply believe that if I don't get the point of the movie is just because the director didn't explain it correctly. Sorry, Antonio, try harder next time.
