Storyline

Wafer factory-owner P. Tinto and his wife Olivia want a child of their own more than anything else in the world. Years of trying, however, have left them with nothing but a pair of extraterrestrial midgets living in the spare bedroom. When they decide to try adoption, a series of misroutings and chance encounters results in an escaped adult mental patient arriving at their door with adoption papers in hand. P. Tinto and Olivia accept this without question and welcome him in as their son. Can this family arrangement work? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Pure surrealism.
19 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

Many convergent histories to a lost place in the middle of nowhere: A man escaped from a psychiatric, two E.T. lost in the Earth, an E.T. hunter working in the construction, a train, and P. Tinto, a man who ever knew what his life was going to be, frustrated by his fallen attempts to make his own family.

Just Fesser's point of view, his gallery of freaks, and the great presence of Luis Ciges filling the screen.
