The initial sequence of this film is not just memorable and absolutely genius, but it also speaks of a masterful stage and choreographic ability: Matias Piñeiro’s third Shakespearian feat opens way through a Soccer 5 field shot from some balcony in Buenos Aires with a score by Schumann. With the help of Fernando Lockett’s great eye and a remarkable acting direction, the theater materials turn into the pure cinema the director has got us accustomed to. Piñeiro takes both his characters and the narration to the extreme, and invites us to make up the puzzle of Víctor’s love life as he returns to Buenos Aires from Mexico and gets surrounded by a series of women: his girlfriend, his ex-girlfriend, his friend, his lover, etc. The free work on a series of Shakespeare comedies, together with musical and pictorial references –like the painting by William A. Bouguereau the film got its title from–, radial elements, and the lucidness of a great orchestrator, delivers a film that transcends all references and assumes its own mark. VB
