Julio Iglesias's House Dirigido por Natalia Marín

Opiniões dos críticos

Environments oscillate between the material and the speculative as warped notions of “typical” Spanish architecture find concrete form, only to be blurred in the dizzying ephemerality of the Chinese property bubble.

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?)

It addresses the recreations of the titular mansion as exemplars of the “typical Spanish house” in exurban residential developments in China. The joke, of course, is that Iglesias’s pad is anything but typical or Spanish, but Marín wittily engages the subject through bizarre CG renderings of surface textures—abstractions of abstractions.
