Description

An obsessive religious digression, an allegory told through circus images, sexual compulsion, and a very interesting plot deconstruction; all the characters keep switching themselves along a misleading story, through a play between the lines of space and time.

Impenetrable and bizarre mobius strip of surrealist scenes… It’s as if someone filmed a Mexican soap episode while under the influence of both Christian guilt and a dose of LSD. The father, and a jaded ex-lover, mixed with scenes of a treatment and burial of a Christ-like figure, a masturbating nun who frequently goes to the toilet, an angel with a whip, a suffering priest, the four horsemen, lots of nudity and artsy representations of lust, strange sets and costumes in a desert or amidst ruins, a group of mean circus performers in the desert drawing the attention of a village girl, and some pretentious narration making poetic statements about sin… The near-plotless, non-linear structure is seemingly supposed to evoke some kind of poetic portrait of desires, sin, lust, passions, religiosity, guilt, suffering…

Mexican director or cinematographer of most of the Mexican surrealist movies of the 70s, including Jodorowsky’s movies, after which he made a series of short rare movies and documentaries and faded into obscurity. His trademarks include a penchant for open, stark or desolate natural scenery and settings, including ruins and poor villages, and heavy usage of religious symbolism. His own movies often empathize with poor and downtrodden Mexicans, and attempt at raising national pride and solidarity.
