I don't speak Spanish (yet!) and so I don't really understand what happens in this movie. However, I watched it on TV with the closed caption on so I could read the Spanish as well as hear it. As a result, there were parts of the movie I was able to understand a little.
Having said that, I found the movie strangely fascinating. I really liked the look of the movie and the acting was mysterious enough for me to watch with interest all through the movie. I'd like to find out if the locations were realistic or were they "tweaked" to produce a certain feeling of an uncluttered life.
Even with the language barrier I found scenes to be quite amusing. I would recommend this movie to any non-Spanish speaker with a sense of humor and an appreciation for the unusual.
