Overview

Library synopsis: [En] Two eternal triangle stories are told from within the neutral-neutered setting of a monastery. Xavier () recounts how his best friend, Juan () tried to steal his girl, Ana (), and accidentally shot her. In each story, the sets mirror the subjectivity of the narrator with designs reminiscent of Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari. (1920), or, the picture’s more obvious antecedent, Schatten (1923)Written by Phil Hardy
