Boring and Chaotic Mess
7 October 2008 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The teenager artist Ana (Manuela Vellés) is raised in Ibiza by her German father Klaus (Matthias Habich) in a naturalist lifestyle in a cave. One day, she meets a woman called Justine (Charlotte Rampling) that invites Ana to move to Madrid, offering education and economical support, to live in an old house with other artists having classes of Arts and with the only commitment of studying. Ana befriends her mate Linda (Bebe) and falls in love for the problematic Said (Nicolas Cazalé), having her first sexual experience with him. After a period together, Said leaves Ana, and then she is hypnotized by Anglo (Asier Newman), discovering her past lives and deaths.

The first work of Julio Meden that I watched was the wonderful "Los Amantes del Círculo Polar" on 29 December 2000. Then, on 10 June 2005, I saw the extremely erotic, weird and confusing but also intriguing "Lucía y el Sexo" that I actually liked. I was looking forward waiting to see another work of this cult director, and I have just watched "Caótica Ana". I found a surrealistic original story, supported by a gorgeous and sexy actress with a lovely smile that exposes her naked body very easily and for free along the feature, and a wonderful cinematography, with beautiful landscapes and scenarios. Unfortunately the screenplay is a boring and chaotic mess, and the conclusion is awful. In the end, "Caótica Ana" is a disappointing movie from a director that I had great expectations. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): "Caótica Ana" ("Chaotic Ana")
