On the run from the police in a desperate attempt to escape a pair of Civil Guardians, Pinedo, a peaceful and quiet gas-station worker, stumbles upon the kind-hearted and easy-going Father Lucas. Unexpectedly, as the two men get close by a twist of fate, their frenzied adventure will interweave with a riotous parade of colourful characters, including an obscure producer of short films and an elderly short-sighted gamekeeper. Written by Nick Riganas

Creativity without limits
12 January 2001 | by el_monty_BCNSee all my reviews

Javier Fesser has a very particular, cartoonish directing style, and this short movie, which has gathered a bit of a cult status in Spain, is probably the maximum expression of his radical approach. The best way to describe would probably be to say it's like a surrealist painting brought to life. A collage of characters, places, sounds and smells which interwaeave and collide with each other in a seemingly chaotic dance, but are really timed which such a sense of rythm that the piece has the coherence of a symphony, albeit one based on the absurd. Even the most seasoned of cinemagoers can't help but be caught off guard on first viewing this unique film. Other efforts by Fesser, although still retaining his skewered style, cannot match the manic energy of this one. Memorable.
