Black Eyes

Director: Iván Alarcón, Ivet Castelo, Sandra García and Marta Lallana
Year Released: 2019
Rating: 0.0

Young teen Paula (Julia Lallana) goes to spend time with her grandmother, hangs around with new pal Alicia (Alba Alcaine) and rides around town on her bike ... and that's it.  It's a very Film School-ish project that's a poor imitation of Coming-of-Age movies - there are close-ups of flies, period blood, roosters - where almost nothing is revealed about any of the characters, their dreams, their beliefs, etc.: it's emptiness-as-an-aesthetic.  I can't believe it took four people to direct it: did they each take turns filming for fifteen minutes or what?
