A matador in training takes the blame for a series of kills – though it would seem improbable.
Trying to sum up this film is tough because I’m not really sure how much Pedro expects the audience to pick-up on in the beginning – simply because how the film unfolds. It unfolds rather slowly – and rather cumbersomely with no narrative really followed or blended carefully in with the others. You begin to wonder if a character’s story is completed as you don’t see them for a while – and another set of characters dominate – then they turn up again. I liked it but there was some obvious flaws in the storytelling – and a few holes in the story – I’ll venture out and give it a 4 out of 5.
