El Orden De Las Cosas (The Order of Things, in English) starts with a man talking to a woman in a tub. It seems like an innocent conversation, but then a number of odd things crop up. Why is the woman always in water? Why can’t the man find his belt? What do all those marks mean?
This dramatic short film about a woman and her husband’s belt is almost heart-breaking. The subtle hint of domestic violence rings throughout the film, and the story-telling for it has been done well. I suppose it’s quite a fitting ending, but oh, how sad it is.
El Orden De Las Cosas is also available on YouTube.
