12+1, una comedia metafísica

12+1, una comedia metafísica

Chiqui Carabante

Spain, 2011, 106 min., Spanish


A few guys walk through the desert in search of something. Only one of them knows what it is. They call him Maestro. Searching through the desert is dangerous, not only because of the harsh conditions of a place with no water and many hours of sunshine, but also due to the fact that the Baptist hangs around the dunes. He is a madman who went from being a fervent believer to an enlightened murderer. That way, the group doubts as to whether they are in search of God or death; or if these are the same.
