The auteur's most self-referential love letter to cinema yet presents the story of a ménage-a-quatre between filmmaker Harry (Homar), leading lady Lena (Cruz), her sugar daddy Ernesto (José Luis Gómez), and Harry's production manager Judit (Portillo). This labyrinthine tale of amour fou unfolds largely in flashback as Harry recounts his sorry story to Judit's son. Ultra-stylish and loaded with thematic weight.
