(Spain/Germany/Portugal/Italy, 2004, 108 minutes)

In 1913 Barcelona, the pregnant wife of a renowned Freudian psychiatrist asks her brother-in-law to help her find out why he ran away from home, and both end up attracted to each other. Basically a standard-issue romantic comedy disguised under period trappings and sly, surreal humour; it doesn’t always work, but it’s an amiable enterprise.
