Alex Brendemühl plays Hans, a German man, a bit silly, without past, starts working for Tanca, a millionaire who lives in a small town of Maiorica. This is the enigmatic beginning of an enigmatic film, very well supported by the Brendemühl and the other actors.
Filmed on location, the film of Rafa Cortés shows us a person who is boring about its own life and tries to live the life of another man but probably it doesn't give him the happiness. The rhythm of the film is quite right: very slow, leaving for the spectator many questions without answer, full of silences and black humour etc. but it's a pity that the end is so precipitate and the spectator has a feeling of dissatisfaction.
As a curiosity, director Rafa Cortes made a few strong rules for the shooting of the film, for example Brendemühl is shooting from just one side. The reason of these rules were for increase the subjective sensation of the film.
