What’s It All About (1995)


Bil’s rating (out of 5):  BBB

Original title:  El Perque De Tot Plegat

Spain, 1995.  Els Films de la Rambla.  Screenplay by Ventura Pons, based on the book by .  Cinematography by .  Produced by .  Music by .  Production Design by .  Costume Design by .  Film Editing by .  

Collection of fifteen shorts that display the major emotions we experience as humans: Love, Passion, Spite, Compassion, Compenetration (I didn’t really get that one either), Jealousy, Competition, etc. Naturally, since we spend more time on jealousy than compassion, that story is longer than the other, a pattern the film depicts throughout its many vignettes. Charming idea that benefits from excellent acting, not to mention Ventura Pons’ constant belief in human beauty, but not his most memorable film.
