Released the year the Berlin Wall fell, the films offers shining images of the new intellectuals and the amnesiac, progressive, political classes. But beneath that sparking surface lies the tension of broken memories and personal and historical cataclysms.

Such a marvel to watch.I hate to say dreamlike but it was in the best way. That ending by the way of the scuba diver picked up by plane from water is the same scenario in Paul Thomas Anderson's Magnolia
_"The passing of time modifies my capacity to evoke and introduces a new system of memory selection. Bit by bit those memories I could share with others become blurred and those I cannot share force themselves on me. They are vivid and persistent memories, but not verifyable by anyone else. There are no witnesses.... All submerge in the slowness and silence of distant memory."_
If the mind finally concedes to the Big Meaning, the one we understand but can't convey, then conveyances are revealed to be farce at worst or, at best, indistinguishable components of the Flow from which Meaning arises. As are all experiences. Leaving no escape from purely base/shallow connections, or the seductions of solipsism, but through art & its moments of mutual understanding. That, or denial. Probably both.
35mm, re-rating. A film that announces, to a great distance, his film on Bach, converging an idea of political intervention with an abstraction of the narrative modes and the subjects. Formalization is appealing, although sometimes there is a tiring rhetoric of movements. What most diminishes the film - which is quite interesting - are the dialogues and fictional situations, too comfortable and accordingly.
no, I don't know who is who and what they are doing I just keep watching them doing stuff but at the end they do nothing, nothing never happened , I can relate nothing, I can't tell about the plot. just..... Barcelona.
There were good moments,dialogue, atmosphere.. but when I think about the movie I don't know what to remember , so I realized I can't keep watching from where I left yesterday. it faded away.
