In Bocca Al Lupo

In Bocca Al Lupo


In Bocca Al Lupo is very curious. It starts off with a girl talking to a mirror. It then moves on to show the same girl lying bloody on the floor, with a man looming over her. There is an interplay of dialogue, and it is only after a few frames that we may realize what’s actually going on.

I had to watch this a few times to understand how the scenes mesh with each other. (Reading this post by The Flick Fanatic’s Companion also helped me understand it better.) Thought-provoking, at the very least. By the way, In Bocca Al Lupo may look very indie in origin, but this won some awards, and was screened in a couple of film festivals.

(This one has few lines, but there are English subtitles available, nevertheless. This other low-budget film seems to be filmed in just one room, too. Or how about this curious, seemingly allegorical short film that involves death?)

I'm the webmaster and author at 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.
