El Topo (The Mole)

This curious short film about men in the underground actually leaves you with more questions than answers. What is the couple doing, exactly? Why did he win the game three times in a row? Why are there dirty-looking people underground?

Curiouser and curiouser.

I'm the webmaster and author at Freespanishshortfilms.com. I started this website as a complement to my studies in the Spanish language, but honestly, it just gave me an excuse to watch lots of great short films (like the ones in my author's picks section). I also blog and write short stories.
