I love Spanish films for their intricate, interconnected web-like plot lines that are larger than life. This film was no exception to this trademark indulgence. I was more captivated by the story than the sex, and I think it would have been an even better film without the lustful scenes. However, in all fairness, the title didn't hide the raunchy content of the film, so it came at no surprise. Also, the filming was at times too fantastical for my taste. I'm not sure if I would watch it again, simply because it was a lot to absorb, but it definitely captivated me for the 2 hours that it ran.
The plot and characters are so dull that it overshadows the brilliance of the concept. It's slow-paced and the female protagonist has little depth.
I did not like this film. It was beautifully shot and Amy Adams did a phenomenal job, but the story line was bizarre. I didn't find it believable, I found it too slow, and I also was annoyed by both Scar Jo's voice and Phoenix's character. As Wilde's character put it, he was "creepy." Despite the film itself being a disappointment, it nailed the problems of today's society, and got me ready to renounce all technology.
Beautifully filmed, wonderfully acted, and gorgeous soundtrack. Truly inspirational story. Although I wonder, if it wasn't based on a true story, would it have been as captivating? Most likely not.
