Anita has been working at a cinema box office for almost three decades, but the building is demolished to give way to a cinema complex, and she is forced into early retirement because she does not fit into the new company's image.
An amusing minimalist frieze in fifteen episodes about human behavior (Desire, Submission, Love, Jealousy, Wisdom, Honesty, Sincerity, Passion, Faith...) situated between two fantastic stories about Willpower and Doubt.
A musical documentary that rummages around in the memories left by the extraordinary composer, lyricist and singer Gato Pérez, while attending his songs performed by popular voices of the Spanish current musical scene.
Luis Eduardo Aute,
Maria del Mar Bonet,
I felt that I had to review this as the former review on the site did it disservice, especially as the film is soon to be released on video, it deserves recommendation. That's not to say the film is perfect, the beginning is somewhat tough slogging, yet you will eventually be rewarded. The premise is thus: In the first half the characters all die from something (choking, auto accident, etc.), in the second half, they are all given a chance to live. To Live or Die. Despite the bleak start, it ends up being comic, celebratory and certainly experimental enough to demand analysis. (Like a lot of Godard, a second viewing is even more rewarding)
