SYNOPSIS

Unconscious(2005) From acclaimed Spanish director Joaquín Oristrell, Unconscious is a delightful period comedy that questions sexual taboos in Barcelona in the early 20th century. With the beginnings of psychoanalysis and a visit from Freud as a leitmotiv and background, brother and sister-in-law Salvador and Alma become involved in a search for her missing husband. Hypnosis, love, danger, and every imaginable taboo are intertwined. Leonor Watling is simply outstanding as nine-months pregnant Alma, a neurotic yet lovable character. Luis Tosar confirms himself as one of Spain's greatest actors. The couple's chemistry helps make this film a rare and special treasure.
