Ximena leads her young friend Diego into a warehouse filled with strange objects. The woman who lives there, Ainda, returns home while the two kids are still inside. Ainda is an artist haunted by the ghost of her dead lover. But she is hiding something even more horrific from the rest of the world. When the two school kids learn this secret, they are plunged headlong into Ainda’s strange world. She leads the two children into the very adult world of drugs and sexual experimentation, but that’s only where their journey begins.
Dreams can be some wicked experience. This film is about the magical dream-world we carry in our head and the ultimate thing that makes the difference between reality/imagery. Diego, a video-artist, and his friend Aida are discovering (though you can say they are experiencing ecstasy) a labyrinth (the house of forbidden pleasures) where they are protected by Harpy-which is in fact a harpy. I believe is somehow a criticism to the post-modernist way of thinking: very rational, though ration is over-valued.
A surreal love story involving a young artist, his teenager friend and a harpy. It is indeed a bizarre film with a lot of nudity scenes and some grotesque-picturesque ones. I was fascinated and amused by the songs (very Manu Chao)- which are proposed as some pop-video-clips- and though it remembers about Lynch films, as you don't understand all the statements this movie propose, and Jodorowski magic realism, it has it's own fantasy style.
