It is a complex film of “mixed-genre montage”4 that deploys techniques of realism, fiction, documentary, absurdism and parody in ways that amount to a most interesting coalescence of seemingly incompatible forms.
Hipnosis ideológica, así la llamó Makavejev cuando se refería a su película y sus personajes que actuaban y se comportaban a merced de algo que estaba por encima de sus propios pensamientos. Todos hacen los suyo, se enamoran, se emborrachan, se meten en grescas, pero por encima hay una autoridad que indirectamente va empujándolos a obecer o accionar según las necesidades de esa otra GRAN autoridad marxista-socialista
Nice little movie with some really great shots. I particularly enjoyed the incredulous looks of the background people in the street scenes. The music seems to have little to do with the action on screen... with the exception of the Beethoven!
This film explorers the simple question of "What is a class system?" using a love story between a beautician and an engineer. Is a class system defined by a job? Ethnicity? Wealth? Sex? The themes were good, but the plot could have been stitched together tighter. (n.b. I am using a new FB app to rate movies)
