I suspect it is a '12" as that's probably the youngest you can be to have a fighting chance of staying awake through this.
I suppose that I must start this review with a question: who exactly is this film for? It can never appeal to a broad range of movie goers; it's far too self-indulgent for that. The basic premiss is that Marcel Garcia Coté is some sort of Judas Iscariot wandering the wilderness seeking 20th Century redemption (for what, we are not quite sure) where he stumbles upon an unwanted Oriol Pla and after a rather strained period, they seem to bond - but again, I wasn't quite sure if they had or, indeed, why they would. I'm not saying every film needs a linear beginning, middle and end - but it does need something tangible (and that can be an idea) for me to hang my coat on. The cinematography is beautiful, but not enough to compensate for the dearth in dialogue. Sorry - afraid this all just went way over my head!
