In brilliant Kodak colour film, Horacio “Hora” Bolz and Papaya Films London take us on a hauntingly beautiful and witty two-part journey of a “serial-wife” and her faithful chauffeur. Bolz dazzles here not only as a director, but also as an actor, as well as a musician under the name of El Perro. His songs “Call Me When You’re Home,” and “Let Me Think That Again,” set the tone for the film, evoking the vibe of a feature film soundtrack.
Directed by Bolz and produced by Papaya Films London, this clever twist on the iconic story of The Sword of Damocles is riddled with adrenaline and an air of surrealist mysticism. This collaboration creates a world reminiscent of “waking up from a dream, and you need to take a moment to understand what’s going on,” Bolz muses.
The film features the complexity of love and friendship, devotion, and the character development of a woman on the brink of changing old habits.
“The main protagonist, the ‘serial-wife’, had to be a complex and wild character. She was born to be a serial killer with a kind of ‘mermaid superpower’ that helps her enchant people she later kills as soon as she gets married,” Bolz says of the backstory. “The chauffeur, on the other hand, is like a silent boss. Born a ‘soul-junkie’, he uses each victim's soul as a drug to survive. When ingested, this powerful ‘drug’ recreates what the victim felt when killed.”
