(Portugal/Italy, 2009, 83 minutes)
A film producer is found dead on his swimming pool after a heady birthday party with his closest friends; or is he just dreaming of another life? A bewildering vanity project for a producer that seems unaware he does not really have a story to tell, substituting glamorous visuals and soft-porn titillation for a sense of plot, storyline or even characters. A waste of time.
