Rating: 4.5/5 -- The Freudian farce Unconscious is paced so breathlessly that it keeps you panting to keep up with each new plot twist. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- Are the Spanish the only ones these days able to make movie comedies that are smart, sexy, wacky and graceful all at once?
Feb 8, 2007
Rating: 4/5 -- The film is sustained effortlessly by the charismatic Watling and Tosar, who are among Spain's most popular movie stars. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/4 -- Everything you always wanted to know about sex, and then some. A bawdy, early Woody Allen-esque slapstick comedy! Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- [Director Joaquin] Oristrell's comedic sense only seems to succeed in spurts, and he often burdens the proceedings with a theatrical and contrived air that undermines the humor. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- [Billy] Wilder would have loved this razor-timed, feather-light comedy set in sexually repressed 1913 Spain.

Rating: B -- Oristrell is a modern day Woody Allen, although with a better sense of rhythm and naughty buffoonery. You'll laugh from corners of your subconscious you didn't know you had. Full Review

Product Description:

Joaquín Oristrell's UNCONSCIOUS is a a very funny romantic farce set in the supposedly austere psychiatric society of 1913 Barcelona. León Pardo (Alex Brendemühl) is a psychiatrist who suddenly disappears, telling his devoted pregnant wife, Alma (Leonor Watling), not to look for him. Worried for her husband's life, Alma enlists the help of her very serious brother-in-law, Salvador (Luis Tosar), another psychiatrist, to discover what is going on and to find León. Meanwhile, Alma's father, Dr. Mira (Juanjo Puigcorbé), one of the leading psychiatrists in Barcelona, is awaiting the arrival of Sigmund Freud, who is scheduled to speak at a special conference. Despite Salvador's protestations, Alma--whose sister, Olivia (Núria Prims), is married to Salvador--leads him on a dangerous adventure filled with sex, lies, violence, deception, and Marxist philosophy.

Alma and Salvador make a fabulous team, part Nick and Nora Charles, part Sherlock Holmes and Watson; Watling, a veteran of several Pedro Almodóvar films, is particularly engaging in the lead role, and Tosar as Salvador--with his hysterical facial hair--is a hoot the whole way through. Mercedes Sampietro adds to the humor as the Pardos's villainous housekeeper. Oristrell balances the seriousness with the farfetched in this old-fashioned romp, cowritten with Teresa de Pelegrí and Dominic Harari, the couple who directed and penned the nonstop comedy ONLY HUMAN. The period piece is enhanced by frames that kick off each new chapter, as well as by the great soundtrack by Sergio Moure.
