The credits for Valencia list twenty directors for the film, which I rather suspect is at the core of its many problems. The story is divided into a dozen and a half chapters, each with a completely different cast — different actors playing the same characters — and a different production team. To say that the result is disjointed goes beyond understatement. This film was enjoyable for the people who appear on screen, but not for most of the rest of the audience. Avoid this film; definitely not recommended. Why this film alone, of all the feature films in the festival, warranted three screenings, will forever remain a mystery.
