One of the most prolific and adventurous filmmakers in
contemporary Spanish cinema, Ventura Pons offers up a
kaleidoscopic x-ray of peculiar urban behaviors. A circuit of
abrupt meetings between displaced city dwellers links the
encounters of characters infected with a strange virus of badtempered
loneliness which they appear to pass from one to the
next as they move through the city.
Under the expert hand of Pons and the excellent performances of
his actors, these figures of self-destructive cruelty seem
irresistibly tender. The hostile streets of Barcelona serve as the
backdrop for this poignant and relevant version of LA RONDE.
