Storyline

Ana, who works on the Committee for the release of some suspected terrorists sentenced to death, suffers a faint. Her uncle Norman, a former doctor who was withdrawn from the drug smuggling license, offers her a remedy that could cure her brain disease, but warns Ana that it can also have consequences: it produces such a dis-inhibition that the patient lies beyond good and evil, ethics and convictions.

rare but exciting
16 August 2001 | by acuesta762See all my reviews

a now major spanish director was starting. franco's dictatorship was still close and symbols still played their role in the spanish films. despite of a weird and not well link paly, the atmosphere created by the excellent photography and sound takes some scenes of this film to the heaven of souvenirs at the brain, still shocking the senses
