too much absurd
20 May 2006 | by dcldanSee all my reviews

Fele Martinez plays the part of a photographer that has a beautiful rich girlfriend that loves him and good perspectives of live. One day, he is robbed and raped by two drug-addicts and his lives changes totally, as he becomes obsessed by one of the girls that raped him. She is in psychiatric treatment, as she has the need of destroy the life of the people that are around her; the photographer won't be an exception as his life starts to change and going hell due to the effects of a fatal love. The argument is not bad, but it is a bit absurd, while the film intends to be reliable. The plot is a bit forced. In addition, the actors are not as better as demanded, on fact they are quite bad (despite the fact that they are good actors) and the chemistry between the main pair is really bad, as they don't seem in love at any moment. I know that the director died wile doing the film, and all the cast decided to continue in his memory, but the result is not good, as Franco's substitute is not as good as him in directing. A disappointing film that, at first sight, seems good although being really bad.
