Storyline

Barcelona, 1913. Alma is perhaps one of the most modern women of her day.Her husband, Dr. Leon Pardo, is a psychiatrist. This summer, he visited Vienna and became a follower of the revolutionary Dr. Sigmund Freud and his advanced theories about hysteria and sexuality. It all starts the afternoon Alma comes home and finds her husband in tears, about to disappear from her life and everyone else's. Giving no more explanation than a few incoherent mumbles, Leon runs off, leaving Alma alone and about to give birth. Salvador is Alma's brother-in-law and a psychiatrist as well. He is much more conservative man than Leon, is deeply in love with Alma. The only clue they have is a manuscript about hysteria and female sexuality based on four patients: An actress with a persecution complex; a psychotic woman who tried to murder her husband; a woman with a serious crisis concerning her sexual identity; a stranger who has discovered a terrible secret about her past. Following those signs, Alma and ... Written by Tornasol Films

A rare jewel
25 September 2005 | by juliensorelSee all my reviews

In today's cinema it is rare to find a movie that is balanced; at the same time entertaining and intelligent. Although many will find this film a bit claustrophobic due to its topic and many references on Freud, I believe that its sparkling humor and humanistic moral will come through.

Acting is superb, with two really fantastic leads. Being a fan of Art Nouveau and Barcelona it was a treat to watch it (admittedly, the thing that caught my attention about this movie was its Klimt-esquire poster).

Direction is also great, since it takes loads of talent to keep a film like this from becoming an empty farce.

Infectious as it is, it may cause symptoms such as immense craving for Freudian psychology, increase of interest in Spanish cinema and temporal philanthropy.
