Review

Minotauro portrays the mysterious journey into the daily lives of three young men. The movie is set in an apartment in Mexico City and nothing much happens. The guys sleep, dream, read, and sometimes welcome visitors to their abode. An ambiguous narrative makes it hard to be totally immersed. The camera barely or never moves for hours on end and the framing is extremely exquisite. The only change that occurs on screen is characters moving or fading out in order to go to another room. Various scenes with fixed long takes are the extreme of minimalism. Pereda firmly imprints his style as he maintains completion in form. Gabino Rodriquez, Luisa Pardo and Francisco Barreiro appear in this dream-like fantasy. (JANG Byungwon)
