A brief essay film in the truest sense of the word, Julio Iglesias’s House is about 80% text, 20% images. This in itself is not a problem, although it does speak to a certain lack of facility with the form. (Why a film rather than an installation or an artist’s book? Why is the film silent, when a voiceover could have freed the image track for a separate chain of information?)
