An experimental silent film by Gabriel Garcia Marquez! File this somewhere between Cocteau and Kerouac. Or between UN CHIEN ANDALOU and LA TERRA TREMA. Or between Maya Derin and Jonas Mekas. I shouldn't have to rate this film against any other film, with stars. It isn't fair. I don't even know if this is a home movie or what. The closest thing I can compare it to is LIMITE (1931).
Space and time: A town at the coast, frozen in time. Nothing apparently ever happens there and it seems it'll never do. Characters: the hotel man, the girl, the cat, the lobster, the wizard, the little boy and the American.
