Flawed but original and thought provoking sci-fi
22 June 2011 | by runamokprodsSee all my reviews

Very interesting low budget Spanish psychological Sci-Fi film, with a quirky sense of humor.

It has holes and weak spots, but I admire it 's aiming high, and using it's tiny budget to the fullest.

This has more in common with 'The Who Fell To Earth' and 'Solaris' than 'Star Wars'.

It's about a shlub sci-fi geek, who may have found a metaphysical portal to another world, or may just be losing his mind.

Full of interesting images and music, at times it gets too cute or clever for it's own good, at other times it drags, and the acting is uneven, but it's certainly more thought provoking than a lot of what's out there.

I could see re-visiting, and even raising it's rating.
