Masterpiece


Two slightly weird men -- one an aspirant actor, the other an aspirant film-maker, try to persuade a top female actress to read the script for their new movie. She declines, and they, convinced that she will love it anyway, end up kidnapping her to force her to read it. One thing leads to another, and she is ''persuaded'' to actually make the film against her will, while constantly trying to escape. A low-key black comedy, in Spanish with English subtitles.

Ian Douglas: Very low-key as a comedy. Since none of the characters are either noble of really pleasant, it is not an ''enjoyable'' film. The general vibe amongst the preview audience was that it was not good.
