Julio Médem

I watched three movies by Julio Médem so far and they are great works of art, of exquisite beauty. They are extremely intense sexually, only there is something very deep related to their heavy, almost unbearable, eroticism. If I were to make a comparison with the movies of Wong Kar-Wai (also of great artistic value), in the works of the Hong-Kong director time is dissolved by Eros: there are no more time sequences, only moments of love, of longing, of lust. In the works of Julio Médem, Eros is breaking the narrative in multiple plans of reality and imagination, each plan of the narrative dissolving the other plans, and claiming to be the unique truth. Eros in the movies of Wong Kar-Wai dissolves the time. Eros in the movies of Julio Médem dissolves the reality.
