Wonderfully original debut
22 October 2012 | by Mr BennSee all my reviews

Following the death of the father they have never met (Feliz Cenzual), Miguel (Javier Sáez) and his equally unknown to him brother Nero (Andrea Calabrese) embark on a trip through central Spain to his funeral. Along the way they meet an assortment of odd characters who punctuate the trip - and the magical 79minute running time - with an assortment of strange lives and fantastic stories.

Life affirming and innocent without any extraneous material, El alma de las moscas is a wonderfully original film perfectly able to restore some faith in innovative filmmaking and storytelling. A subtly profound script hints at philosophical depths that do not need to be shouted at the audience - the whole has a wonderful innocence that draws the viewer firmly into its fable.
