Let’s put a lot of things down to the costs of a feature-length debut. The director’s passion for eclecticism, for everything bright and colorful, which can only partially be justified by his Spanish temperament. And the producer with the catchy surname Almodovar.
In essence, the picture is unjustifiably fricative, lacking content and boiled down to some unpretentious sketches on the theme of the adventures of assholes. The Spaniard has paid generous tribute to Genet’s pictures, first and foremost to ‘Delicatessen’, and, of course, to ‘The City of Lost Children’. The Frenchman’s visual fantasies are clearer, more interesting and embodied on a different technical level than those of the cranberry-splattered Spaniard. Terry Gillaim’s aesthetics are also welcome in the film, but it is still better to watch the originals.
You can see the director’s ingenuity in the minutiae, but the awful color schemes and the frenzied use of frequent freaks in the smoky sewers are, right, overkill.
If one avoids a retrospective look at Iglesias’ work, one must note at the end of the film that the director could have both grown into something more, and also bogged down in unpleasant thrash. The Spaniard, fortunately, chose the former.
