I found this movie after watching a clip taken from it, apart from Vicent Gallo (kind of a fetish actor for me), i didn't knew anything from it so it was a very surprising and pleasant experience for me.
This is not the usual mainstream movie nor even your usual arty stuff. To me it was more of a whimsical movie where you need to fill the empty spaces with your own personal experiences.
Electronic music, Vitalic OST is almost perfect (too repetitive but that it's needed to stress the message), but there's always a fight between Analogic/Real vs Digital/Surreal going on.
The movie is made of archetypes but we have the power to decide which is what.
The camera work is dated, reminding me of post II War Italian movies, that when contrast with the up to date musical references made my brain twitch.
Sorry for the digressive review but this is a perfect movie for me because lingers for ever.
Essential viewing in my opinion.
