THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN LIFE IS NOT BEING DEAD

Lo más importante de la vida es no haber muerto

Trailer
Directed by Olivier Pictet, Marc Recuenco, Pablo Martín Torrado
Spain, 2010
Comedy, Drama
      Spanish

Synopsis

An esteemed piano tuner and repairer, Jacobo leads an apparently happy life with his wife, Helena. His serene existence is thrown into a state of confusion when insomnia creeps in, and pianos that previously repaired miraculously overnight remain unfixed.

Our take

Paranoia and comedy can be so deliciously close together. Just witness this festival treat from Spain—the promising debut of a fresh filmmaking collective—which turns an insomniac’s hallucinations into a game that ties reality into a knot and stretches the cord tight. Visually rich magic realism.
