Very little memory...
12 February 2003 | by elforelSee all my reviews

Unfortunately,I can't say much about this movie because it is a distant memory... I've had the chance to see it in a festival in Italy some years ago. But there is one thing I will ALWAYS remember and that I want to share with everyone, there is a line saying that: "When the germans found the painting Guernica, they asked Picasso: -Have you done this painting? -No, YOU did it..." Isn't that wonderful? I don't know if that is a true event or not, but that was wonderful... This movie was very serious and dark and far from being as baroque and surrealist as Kusturicas other movies...It was a film made in the cinema school...That's about all I remember about it... Oh yes, and everyone had turned on their lighters during the movie, because we had been handed a sheet with the translation of the dialogs...Very peculiar atmosphere!
