Academic documentary? Aesthetic debate? Romantic comedy? Once again, José Luis Guerin produces novel perspectives by artfully playing across genres as he did in the haunting In the City of Sylvia (32nd). Starting here with Raffaele Pinto, a real professor at the University of Barcelona and his attentive philosophy students, Guerin and his collaborators create a tale of discontent and seductions interwoven with the headiness of debate among female students who constitute the muses – on so many levels – of this unique fantasy.
