I don't find anything weird about Lucía y el Sexo
I didn't mean weird as in the films are odd, I meant weird as in films nobody else watches.
It's not weird that you like that partiular director - you're Spanish. It is weird compared to the people who are likely to give me recommendations who are English, and in the main, wouldn't dream of reading subtitles.
Rapsodia V Byalo, incidentally, is about a woman who performs in a puppet theatre, and...it's hard to say what it's about, she's just living life, but while it's completely different in tone - it's slapstick and over the top - it's very similar to Lucia Y El Sexo, in that it's about blurring the lines between reality and fiction. Lorenzo is writing a book they're living, she's living a life she's acting. It's a very different take, but the same underlying concept.
I know what you meant, I meant that I don't find it weird that you know and like that film (Lucía y el Sexo), as it's known abroad, and its director is one of the most internationally recognized ones when it comes to Spanish film directors.
It's not weird that I like that particular director being myself Spanish, but you could say it's weird that the majority of films I watch and actually enjoy are not Spanish. There are only a few directors here I really respect, and I believe our film industry is ages away from being as good as other countries' (generally speaking). And I usually watch undoubted movies because I like to hear the original voices and dialogues, especially when they're in English, for a variety of reasons, one of them being the fact that you often miss some essence in the acting when you watch the doubted version.
There are also some movies which never get to be released here, so you have to find them on the internet and watch the original version with the subtitles made by altruistic movie fans.
So yeah, I watch films not many others watch too, or decide to watch them in a way the majority here in Spain wouldn't.
