O.V. Englsih subtitle in Spanish
The Finnish pop star, composer and artist Anna Eriksson stars in, writes and directs this film from another world, which explores the relationship between sex and death. And, like every self-respecting work of art, it caused controversy at the Critics’ Week in Venice. A copy of Marilyn Monroe (Eriksson) living in a sphere like Twin Peaks represents in various paintings a 21st century version of the dark side of the myth. A sensorial experience, like they never expected to have inside a cinema.
