This isn't Pereda's strongest film, but you can see his skill coming through in this one. Perpetuum Mobile stands in anticipation of his later films, all of which are great. More about this film on my site: http://tinyurl.com/mw8z5wl
A nice surprise. At first I did not think I would enjoy it as much as I did. It's very simple, but at the same time, unclear. In that way, it reminded me of Weerasethakul. The actors are actually very sympathetic. The only element that left me skeptical was the cinematography. With no lights it's mostly underexposed, but through the windows it's overexposed, and some shots have a really shallow focus.
