Original title: El Perque De Tot Plegat
Spain, 1995. Els Films de la Rambla. Screenplay by Ventura Pons, based on the book by Quim Monzo. Cinematography by Carles Gusi. Produced by Ventura Pons. Music by Carles Cases. Production Design by Rosa Ros. Costume Design by Marta Almarcha. Film Editing by Pere Abadal.
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.
