Two young men and a young women occupy a flat in Mexico City. They spend their days reading alone, reading aloud, and sleeping. From time to time, a maid arrives to tidy their quarters. Time and even space cease to exist; there is only the present somnambulant moment, drifting between sleep and wakefulness.
Nicolás Pereda's seventh film is a wraithlike fantasy that studies both the nearly-obsolete ritual of cloistering oneself from the world to read, and the social status that would make such an activity possible. Minotaur premiered at both the New York Film Festival and Toronto.
