(de) wrote: Halfway between the tale and the real story, a women's fight. A love strike against stubborness, stupidity, machism. A great movie, colourful. Loved the "The veil should not be on women's face, it should be on men's eyes".
(gb) wrote: Decent enough film set in a fantastic, alternate reality. Interesting premise but the story is a little weak.
(nl) wrote: I know nothing about Reinaldo Arenas, but I still found this movie really interesting. And looking at it from an artistic point of view, it's also brilliantly acted and visually beautiful. It's very long, and a bit slow paced, so it probably won't appeal to everyone, but I found it pretty engaging.
(gb) wrote: I saw this on YouTube after I read that somehow the director built an opening sequence that lived up to the original's. And it's true. The first 15 minutes or so are expertly crafted -- and the victim is as smart as possible in conversation with an unseen Big Bad Wolf.For the rest of the movie, the director keeps up his method of using longer takes with silence and darkly lit, deep compositions to increase tension. Our eyes go searching for spaces and moments where the generic scare might leap out at us. For the most part, he keeps us tense and guessing in the shadows. It's a unique gift he deserves credit for.The plot investigates the events of the opening sequences, and perhaps spoils it a bit with strained rationalizations. Kane and Durning are great, and great together, but parts of the script just don't make it. Nothing in the movie compares well next to the dread of the beginning, except maybe two weird scenes. In one, the killer starts rapping the tummy of someone who doesn't want to play anymore and in the other, he does an uncomfortable stage act and then camouflages himself in an alley.

(it) wrote: Let me just say one thing! The movie for the first day is actually quite interesting... it's like observing somebody's life. Coolio.........2nd day it repeats EVERYTHING from day one with slight variations.... Huh? And same with the 3rd day! What's the point? To show how boring her life is. I understand quit hammering it in! There is 40 minutes of her sitting in a chair doing NOTHING!! Oh wait throughout the 3 1/2 HOURS there is nothing done but her doing chores!! That's it! This has to be the most pointless and pretentious film that was ever made. Back then film was expensive so they basically ran the film on somebody's lonely day wasting money and time. That's the point is to feel bored! SHUT UP!! SHUT SHUT SHUT UP!! If I filmed myself eating a sandwich for 5 minutes would I BE PRAISED as a artist??? Maybe.... But that's the point. JUST DOING CHORES!! "Look at how boring my life is" If your lifes boring find ways to spice it up and don't look for a button.Maybe for a lonely short film or like a 80 minute cut would've been actually decent and different. BUT 210 MINUTES IS FREAKING OVERKILL even watching it at a 2x speed and occasionally skipping during long moments of her washing the dishes, shining shoes all 3 times she does it. ART ART ART ART ART! You really can't call anything that's different deep and artistic unless it DESERVES to be. This isn't difficult to film at all! ANYONE!! FREAKING ANYONE CAN DO IT!! Skippity skip skip skip.
