Very simple and complex at the same time...
19 January 2003 | by MRBICKLESee all my reviews

Short movies, because of their brief running time, suffer obviously from limitations that long feature films don't have. You can't tell some stories in a short and yes, there are stories that don't need more than a short, too. Smart directors (from shorts, I mean) often take profit of this "problem" focusing his films more on technique aspects (like Javier Fesser) or sophisticated plot devices.

José María Goenaga uses in TERCERO B the famous RASHOMON device of several points of view. We see two characters, Irene (an excellent Blanca Portillo) and an unknown man (Ramón Aguirre) meeting in a beach, apparently feeling mutual attraction (I repeat: apparently) and later being protagonists of some circumstances I won't reveal. Well, we see those circumstances through Irene's and the man's eyes. And nothing is what it seems...

Yes, this device is not new (I've seen it not only in RASHOMON or in the Tarantino films, but also in some spanish shorts) but Goenaga makes too a convincing and surprising description of his characters, using only brief dialogues (Irene with her mother, for example) and showing a lot with very little time.

Besides the cinematography is just superb and the actors are wonderful (Mariví Bilbao looked like a mix of Terele Pávez, Pilar Bardem and Lola Gaos). Very recommended.
