  1. Paolo's rating of the film The Wandering Soap Opera

    The girlfriend fell asleep

  2. Tom Holland Prieto's rating of the film The Wandering Soap Opera

    La imagen dentro de la imagen dentro de la imagen dentro de la ficción dentro de la ficción en un relato que se hiperconjuga a través de mecanismo godarniano. Errante ante distintas posibilidades de la inverosimilitud se construye el maxirelato de lo cómico y absurdo, salido de una lata, tumba del realizador, ambos reviven y la telenovela de la maravilla vanguardista se convierte en una exploración cinesorprendente.

  3. Carlitos's rating of the film The Wandering Soap Opera

    La risa en vacaciones en versión Chilena.

  4. Reynaldo Goulart's rating of the film The Wandering Soap Opera

  5. Alex Meire's rating of the film The Wandering Soap Opera

    The humor is fun albeit a bit tiresome. The very first scene may well be the best. Ahead, a good few are interesting, tight, charming and memorable. The whole composes a fine genre parody surreal maze. It's worth it.

  6. Gustavo Neves's rating of the film The Wandering Soap Opera

    Entendi porra nenhuma, não gostei, chato.

  7. Spezialle_K's rating of the film The Wandering Soap Opera

    Mindscrewing wonderment by the spadeload. Bits of Lynch and Chris Morris’ Blue Jam in there. Not the foggiest, but in love with it nonetheless. Very funny and thoroughly entertaining. Worth every confused minute put in.

  8. Rafael's rating of the film The Wandering Soap Opera

  9. Ramon Colom's rating of the film The Wandering Soap Opera

    Surrealista historia de Raul Ruiz, desigual, muy divertida en algunos momentos y en otros demasiado lánguida. Buñuel hubiese firmado con placer esa secuencia del día 2 en qué un alto funcionario se pregunta si excelente termina en b o v y alguien le contesta que termina en d. Novelas que hablan de telenovelas y que nos permiten retratar a la sociedad chilena. Gran éxito en Locarno.

  10. BHASKAR's rating of the film The Wandering Soap Opera

    Well nothing much to talk about this.I must say this sadly that nowadays every random sex drama becomes a sort of bong hit and it's become a sort of banal thing of today. But I think this movie had its elements of black humour and the characters had their ad libs rehearsed well indeed so much that at one point the veils begin to fall off revealing the true insides of the characters, and that is disgusting enough.

  12. g's rating of the film The Wandering Soap Opera

    Gran manejo de los recursos fílmicos. Para tratar temas políticos el surrealismo quizás sea una de las mejores vías. Lo hace soportable. Me dejó ganas de ver de vuelta las películas de Jodorowsky y alguna de Cozarinsky.

  13. tubbssw's rating of the film The Wandering Soap Opera

    Some of the segments are less accessible than others but the material is fresh and his style of humour is worthy of attention and respect.

  15. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film The Wandering Soap Opera

    Not for me. It just didn't work, in terms of the humour or the playing around with the medium. I have enjoyed the three or four other Ruiz movies that I have seen, but this one felt ultimately too meandering, too busy trying to show off the intelligence of the film-makers, and just a bit pointless.

  16. Adam Whybray's rating of the film The Wandering Soap Opera

    3.3 stars. Scattered, intriguing and confounding by turns. Sarmiento has woven a rich tapestry from disparate strands here. It does not quite possess the luminous quality of Ruiz's most seductive work, but I appreciate his/her insistence upon having you sit with mystery and enjoy the play of the veils. Plus, it has some really good gags!

  17. rodrigoqbo's rating of the film The Wandering Soap Opera

    Sólo la genialidad de alguien como Ruiz podría llevar el formato "telenovela" a nivel de arte. Surrealismo, ironía, absurdo, parodia, crítica... Si bien una obra inacabada o tal vez un mero ejercicio que Ruiz no tenía la intención de sacar a la luz, indudablemente deja ver el talento e inteligencia de uno de los grandes maestros del cine.

  18. Royce Jr.'s rating of the film The Wandering Soap Opera

  19. Carlos Pineda's rating of the film The Wandering Soap Opera

    Un filme muy ruiziano: siguiendo su criterio "en contra del conflicto central", no presenta personajes protagónicos, ni antagónicos, tampoco propone causas y efectos, menos aun, sigue una única línea argumental sino que las deriva, las empieza y no las concluye...y su construcción del encuadre sigue el mismo principio de otros filmes: muy elaborado, sobresaturado, un ángulo a ras, con objetos que interfieren...

  20. josé neves's rating of the film The Wandering Soap Opera

    PC. In addition to completing Ruiz's unfinished projects, there is also the possibility of adding a contemporary "prosthesis" that perspective them in a more dynamic and creative way than the mere imitating act. This is what happens in this film, unexpectedly when we almost forgotten him, a proof of Ruiz's immense creative gesture in contemporary cinema, that of an iridescent multiform political artist.

  21. Artyom Yakovlev's rating of the film The Wandering Soap Opera

    When seen separately, these tiny episodes and snippets are uneven but at least they look fun and are quite enjoyable. However, when put together, they still can’t be viewed as a complete, coherent movie; you can see that they are too different structurally and conceptually, belong to different eras of Ruiz’s career and can’t expand each other into a common storyline. They should have been released as separate shorts.

  22. dionysus67's rating of the film The Wandering Soap Opera

    Lament, homage, satire, absurdism and parodic political essay, Sarmiento's completion of the skeletal Ruiz project has enough cinematic glitter to recover the Ruizian universe and, like Ruiz, to supply this glitter with an aesthetically fluid narrative, despite logical gaps. In fact, some of the shots -gorgeously lit- contain enough to give voice to the elliptical and humorous proceedings on desire, love and crime.

  23. nica's rating of the film The Wandering Soap Opera

    Starts off fun and hilarious but the last parts kind of lost me. Cheers to getting to watch an unfinished film of Ruiz though!

  24. Wesley Pereira de Castro's rating of the film The Wandering Soap Opera

    Algumas metáforas políticas soam herméticas para quem não conhece os detalhes da história chilena ou está familiarizado ao tom entrecruzado de algumas telenovelas (risos), mas o modo como o cineasta conduz este exercício genial de nonsense (em plena abertura da década de 1990) surpreende e enfeitiça o espectador. Lembra Peter Greenaway... Parabéns à viúva pelo grandioso trabalho de reconstrução! (WPC>)
