(aka "The Tit and the Moon" )

 

directed by Bigas Luna
Spain 1994

 

Bigas Luna is obsessed with sex; at least so it seems when one looks at his body of work, most famous “Jamón, jamón” from 1992. I’ve only seen some of his films, and I must admit, I have never had any thoughts about them. Many Spanish films screened at our cinemas in the early nineties was obsessed with sex, not in an Almodovar kind of sense, but more in a Russ Meyerish it-is-naughty-thus-its-fun kind of sense, and even the most ordinary problems in life were rooted in sex.

But I have to admit, I enjoyed “La Teta y la luna”. A lot. It is so unadulterated and surreal, so upfront in its declaration of love to the tit, the female breast and to the milk of life. Completely perverted, totally surreal, but irresistible charming.

Tete is a nine-year old boy, who when his mother gives birth to his little brother and subsequently breastfeeds him, develops an obsession for breasts and breast milk, begging the moon to give him a breast of his own to feed upon.

The story never really turns solid, or for that matter into anything with an idea. It acts like a coming-of-age comedy, with added love triangle romantic comedy , but in the end, it really is a rather pointless and silly excuse for showing a lot of naked breasts. But even so, it is done with so much love and attitude, that I had to give in and enjoy this surreal fantasy.

Comments Additional to very visible compression artifacts, especially edge enhancement and macro blocking, the details are weak, almost as if focus isn't sharp enough, and both combing and ghosting is present. A decent, but not really good transfer.

Sound is only 2.0 Dolby Digital, which makes me wonder, if this is a true Tartan or a port of another DVD.

A brief interview, even though 4 minutes hardly can be called an interview, and the trailer and that's it.
