Unconscious - Movie Synopsis & Plot
From acclaimed Spanish director Joaquín Oristrell, "Unconscious" is a delightful period comedy that questions sexual taboos in Barcelona in the early 20th century, yet resonates with a modern sensibility. With the beginnings of psychoanalysis and a visit from Freud as a leitmotiv and background, brother and sister-in-law Salvador and Alma become involved in a search for her missing husband. Hypnosis, love, danger, and every imaginable taboo are intertwined.
Leonor Watling ("Bad Education") is simply outstanding as nine-months pregnant Alma, a neurotic yet lovable character. As the love-struck Salvador, Luis Tosar confirms himself as one of Spain's greatest actors. The couple's chemistry helps make this film a rare and special treasure.
