The personal experience of a man who travels to the Catalan Pyrenees and doesn't know what to do with himself.
9 November 2006 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Let's see: this must be one of the most boring and pretentious films I've ever seen in my whole entire life. I watched in a preview, beside the director, the actors, and the audience could not avoid three or four strokes of laughter during this interminable bullshit about life, solitude, and sadness. I find so hard to justify a story titled "Fiction" that tries to reproduce reality's own pace and rhythm with such tedious and melancholy... During the show, a "real" accident happened: a lamp fell above the head of a guy who was seated at my left, and this moment was a great paradox, cause that event -so stupid you couldn't believe in a movie, in a "fiction", if you tried-, was by far much more interesting -the man was shocked, his head full of small pieces of glass, it was amazing!-, than the "reality" that was happening on the screen...

The idea was not so bad: to show those moments of life that are never shown in movies. But it simply doesn't work: nothing is ever happening. Nothing. The idea was not bad, but... Good try, If you care... But you won't care.

Stay away from it, it's not a film, but an experiment, and it will explode in your face!
