Liso, an upper middle class young man, has just finished a stay at a psychiatric institute. He goes to live at his parent's house where he is treated as if he were a child. He begins a relationship of mutual complicity with Sonia, the Bolivian maid, who takes care of him and protects him. Liso tries to recapture old loves but he is unable to pull his life together. Everything seems to be broken. The only things that seems to keep him going is his relationship with Sonia and the time he spends with his grandmother.
Inside the mind of ... might have been a good title too. The portrayal of the main character is really good. It might make you feel uncomfortable and you can't judge him like a normal person either. But the performance is more than compelling. The story might feel simple but you can obviously read a bit more into this.
As part of the Berlin International Festival this movie did hit a nerve with the audience. It's a fine acted drama that plays out right and feels right too. Actually that's not entirely true, because it also feels wrong. Especially when the main character seems to go over the edge again. But it is coherent with what the movie is telling us.
