From the 24th Portland International Film Festival. I'm all for surrealism, don't get me wrong, but this Bunuel-meets-Bergman film from Argentina does not stop to think if it might be too saturated with the directors personal metaphors. I think the symbolism (if there was any) is too buried to be even interesting to navigate. Granted, some visuals are original and/or interesting, but most of the film is 'surreal' to the n-th degree and goes to the point where the viewers say "what's the point?" I gave it a 3 because it did have some good shots and humorous moments, but an all around annoyance of pretentious imagery. The plot is reminiscent of Dark City, and the look of the film is that of Fellini and Bunuel so it's not too original either.
