Jose Luis Ducid, without pasteurization, serves us – sells us – poems with his curdling, his acidic point of sarcasm, and well sprinkled with the powder of realism. The vía crucis, or say: the milky way of this film takes place in non-bucolic spaces and without much meringue. Situations in which people die vomiting custard. Indi-blurp cinema – with gestures.
Ducid is a skeptical character in the supermarket of life. And he appears a bizarre storyteller.(Estíbaliz Espinosa)
