Directed by Ventura Pons
Urban alienation and
sexual exploration merge in the eleven interlocking stories that make up
this interesting feature. The troubled relationships and chance encounters
of the characters build to startling acts of violence, frustrated oedipal
desires, and all manner of sexual activity in a chain of self-destructive
events. A dark, yet often surprisingly funny, view of isolation and
starvation for affection. "...skillfully portrays whole lives with
minimalist touches...erotic and eloquent" (Sight and Sound).
Catalan with English subtitles. 96 minutes.
