Cristóbal Arteaga Rozas | Spain | 2013 | 87 min. | O.V. Spanish subtitled in English
There is a growing tension in this film which follows the steps of a man in a suit on a day of endless transactions. Starting with an outburst (he storms threateningly into the house of a woman and her daughter) and closing with a disconcerting, clarifying ending, the despair is palpable in the wanderings of this top executive who is forced to pawn all his belongings while acting normally in front of his family. With the crisis at the centre (and the constant murmuring of empty political discourse in the background), the film shows the effects of its disastrous consequences on someone who probably was one of those responsible for it.
