Carlos Saura's The Stilts (Los Zancos) features Fernando Gomez as a middle-aged professor/playwright. Falling head over heels in love with actress Laura DelSol, Gomez begins obsessing on the girl, despite her unwillingness to make a commitment. When another, younger man (Francisco Rabal) enters the scene, the drama darkens into melodrama. While the story material in The Stilts may seem old-hat at first glance, Spanish filmmaker Carlos Saura invests his characters with enough conviction and humanity to keep the viewers riveted to their chairs. Eschewing his previous "nonlinear" narratives (which ignored such trivialities as chronology and reality), Saura directs The Stilts in an austere, near-documentary fashion.

Matthew B (kr) wrote: This movie is about an oversized bug is caught up in a most unexpected adventure in this animated comedy. It's 1910, and Raoul is a Parisian delivery man by day and scientist by night who is determined to brainstorm an important new invention. With the help of his friend Emile, a cinema projectionist with women on the brain, Raoul attempts an experiment in a greenhouse that has an unexpected side effect -- a tiny flea has suddenly expanded until it's seven feet tall. The enormous flea gets loose and it's not long before word is out that a monstrous bug is haunting Paris. This is the movie that I avoided every since I saw it's advertisement back in 2012, I didn't think it looked so i avoided it, but for a while I finally watched it and it isn't terrible at all but I wasn't amazing or everything like that. The movie has beautiful animation and the characters didn't do my head in as I thought they where. But the film isn't re-watchable and the ending has so much cliches in it I couldn't believe it.

After seeing someone get their throat cut with a Mountain Bike, you can only wonder what is wrong with the film industry for approving this. God awful. Burn this movie if you get the chance. I'm scared to even think about a sequel. Nothing about this movie is appealing accept for the sheer level of bad it reaches.

Il laisse cette meme impression que quand on vient de voir un film de Lynch a cause de cette confusion entre le reel et l irreel.Ce film est tres envoutant, la tension du film, l athmosphere monte crescendo jusqu'a devenir oppressante, angoissante voire meme derangeante...Les acteurs excellent dans leur role. Charlotte Rampling est sublime, a couper le souffle ! Le scenario est impeccable et finement boucle, le titre illustrant l histoire releve du genie.La mise en scene est maitrisee, ce film est une veritable merveille.Pour moi, largement superieur a "Harry un ami qui vous veut du bien", d une part a cause de son originalite (drame fantastique) et d autre part pour la profondeur et le genie du scenario.A voir absolument !!
