Rubén Iñiguez  Pérez review: Firs par ot the trilogy ” A contraluz” by the director Eduardo Chapero-Jackson. In this first part deals with anorexic with a more visual narrative instead of using much more dialogues. The director tries to shock with images instead of falling into the easy and topic story of conventional narrative with a moral at the end. Also mentioning the great work the actress Macarena Gómez does. One of the most prize-winning short movies of the Spanish cinema in the last years and that shows the talent of this filmmaker.
