The Unbearable Dullness of Being
23 August 2009 | by writeagainSee all my reviews

Just finished watching this Mexican gem. The actual name,"Sangre"(Blood) is misleading. I would call it "The Unbearable Dullness of Being". As I see it, the moral of the story is that a dull life leads to losing any idea of honour, honesty, and after a while you don't know what's dear to you, what you're living for. And the point of selecting unprofessional actors is probably in proving that you and me and that guy might so easily lose our soul instincts if the life is filled just with 9-to-5 job routine, evening meal, TV and some copulation. So, if you're strong enough to have sat through this seemingly senseless film, then give yourself a bit of a mental job and probably you will get the point...
