Comments on the film


The film that moves me the most is the one about Orson Welles. I find is the freest one. It has so much deepness and sense of humour. There are fragments where the director plays with shapes, entering, moving out like Welles entering and passing by the area. There is a relationship between the character, Orson Welles, who is a real person, and the film which is also a living matter. This lines drawn by Aguirre, these ink blotches that are moving translate the vitality of this man. It’s like if he had wrapped Orson Welles.




Underwelles has sense of humour and is satiric, it’s a fascinating picture.
