Reality, not fiction (Ficcio)
This is a risky film. Risky in two aspects: First of all in the way it communicates with the audience, it uses so many gestures, it asks so much from the audience, you have to be aware about what "it is not happening" in a film where nothing happens. OK, I try to explain it. It is a film where nothing seems to happen in the foreground (the plot, the dialogs) and everything is happening in the background (like in the real life), this background is the way the characters looks each other, the actions when nothing happens, the silence, the movements... In this way, the actors and actresses have to be very good to do this job and they do, they pass the test! This film is risky too (in my opinion) because it has been shot in Catalan language but, once again, why not, they are in Catalonia!, why should the characters talk in Spanish!? The content? The film talks about love, life, happiness, and relationships... Simply I think the director has made the film as he wanted it, far from commercial thoughts and worries about audience, close to life itself, reality, feelings and emotions. My applause for Cesc Gay and all my respect for him. Definitely, brilliant film, a director to follow up...
