Storyline

Pere-Lluc has a certain tendency to reflect upon his personal situation with irony and scepticism, though tinged with (sometimes black) humor; his actions are chaotic, excessive, out of control: the result of the crisis he is going through. One night, heading home drunk, hits his head on the aluminum ladder a girl is using to hang banners from the streetlights. He falls to the ground and, slightly dazed, is mesmerized by the girl. As the days go by, he becomes more and more obsessed with her. She tortures him. We witness the story of his tormenting passion in his efforts to win her love. Written by Anonymous

Absurd story (or idiot)
21 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

Pere is an idiot, but he is aware about it and acts in consequence. His life is totally boring and he doesn't know how to change it. When his last friend, Nicco, dies. He feels totally empty and he decides to go out to become drunk. When he is returning home, he crashes with a girl that puts advertisements. Although she ignores him, he fells in love and starts to follow her, obsessively. Well the beginning of the film is a bit slow, and can result boring for most people. However, as action begins, it is a little better (not much!, maybe, the best part is the 5 minutes of sex (almost 30 different scenes about it) that you can see in the middle of the movie; it is not good for the erothism, but for the funny and unexpected that is the scene. Probably it is the best of the film. Neither the actors nor the directing is good, and the results is a boring film that that can result funny for some people (not for me). All the film is based on absurd situations (idiot, as the film says), that have anything interesting. I like Ventura Pons, but I have to admit that this is not one of his best films (maybe his worst!), he knows to do it better.
