Storyline

"Mother" stands out on the front of her black t-shirt, "Fucker" on the back. And as angrily as these words sound when combined into a curse, is how Antonia behaves. Because she is pregnant, and Victor, who slept with her, is getting married in a few hours to Blanca. Incensed, and looking like a black angel of revenge, she searches out her rival, already in her white wedding robes, to confront her with this fact. Her neighbour Gabriel, a film student, has agreed to record everything on video, to soothe Antonia's fury. When Blanca learns, in front of the camera, that her future husband has betrayed her well and proper, she hired Gabriel at short notice as a cameraman for a wedding video of a quite different kind. Blanca finds her husband having a shower, drives him out into the street and exposes this Latin lover, not just verbally. "We have over a million sperm and you have just one egg to be fertilised", the womanizer argues, driven into a corner out in the open. Even better than his ... Written by Mannheim Film Festival

Brilliant
16 July 2004 | by martijnbressersSee all my reviews

Amazing film! I stayed focused throughout all 65 minutes of the film without leaving the TV for a second. I wonder how is it possible to make a movie without a single cut, and, apparently this being possible, why it has never been done before (as far as I know). Acting of the highest level is one thing that is required to achieve this, which is probably not to often available. Hard to imagine that the entire 65 minutes were set out and thought over all before they started schooting, without -apparently- not a single (visible) instruction from the director during the film (what was his task?). Even the silent moments (without speech) are worth watching because it enables you to try and feel the bride's emotions. Brilliant piece of art and probably the cheapest film ever.
