Narcissistic exercise. Hope the real life director is not as boring.
The first half of the film could take one fourth of the time, and the plot would be equally well served. The "core", that is, the romance between the two main characters could remain the same.

But the film character is uninterested and uninteresting, and it is hard to tell whether he is more of the former than of the latter. I hope that the real life director beats his creation at both. Some dialogs are incredible, for a "real life" person or for a film character. And the magnificent scenery of the region is mostly wasted. The second half of the film makes a little more sense than the first half, as there is some argument and the vague semblance of a "plot". But it unfolds and ends "uneveventfully", with no major dilemmas or crisis for the characters involved. Life may be boring, admittedly, but to waste the money of the Spanish taxpayers, and my time .... that is a little bit too much. Surprised at the directors inability in this film to tell us a story instead of what I assume is talking about himself and his problems ...
