Underwhelming tale concerning a middle aged woman tired of the mundane life of being a wife and esthetician as well as dealing with a never ending ringing in her ears who one night packs a suitcase and disappears into the night. What she finds is just another kind of mundane. Carmen Machi is game for the role the script just never goes anywhere.
Pourquoi aimer ALMODOVAR, son exubérance, ses personnages qui font battre le cœur, ses histoires pleines de vie, de rires & de larmes, quand il y a REBOLLO & ses personnages ternes, à l'action lente, à l'histoire minimaliste? Why watch ALMODOVAR, his exuberance, his characters that make the heart beat, his stories full of life, laughter & tears, when there's REBOLLO's dull characters, slow action & minimalist story?
Everyone needs a change in their routines; maybe women need it more. This idea -changing the appearance and getting lost and being on the move-has always seemed very attractive to me too. However, in the end, I'd like to see Rosa to take that flight.
Extremely idiosyncratic film, slow pace, scarce dialogue, aimless wandering in multicultural and decadent Madrid at night. It's for sure allegoric at times but its symbolism seem out of place, the characters' motives remain in the dark, the performances are frozen. Embarrassingly awkward movie that reminded me of Roy Andersson. Maybe it implies a bigger drama than that i felt it was the case. 4,5/10
