She counts the years in the future, he thinks in the past. He takes revenge, she plunges into it. Here we go!
For their first joint feature film as writers and directors, the multidisciplinary artist Julia de Castro and the director/cinematographer María Gisèle Royo take us to Spain with a road movie that is completely enjoyable, free, irreverent, wacky and erotic for our greatest pleasure.
Carried by its supercharged characters, Milagros (embodied by the director herself Julia de Castro), who wants to believe in the magic of fertility (Milagros means ‘miracle’ in Spanish), Jonathan (the very attractive Omar Ayuso from the Netflix series Elite), and the mysterious mermaid also called Reina (a queen, fantasized alter ego and questioner of Milagros’ maternity impulses), the film takes us on this quest and questioning of motherhood. Without ever reducing its characters to their obsessions, On the Go explores the limits of intimacy with great tenderness and without false modesty. To what extent is the desire of one acceptable to the other?
A razor-sharp script, chiseled with humor and various references, punctuates the incredible adventures of the trio who discover a fourth character hidden in their trunk: a young man who has just escaped from an artist residency. The film does not allow us for a second to settle into a comfortable situation. As soon as a scene is set, the directors take us elsewhere: from the desert to the sea, from a village bar to a baptism, to a sanctuary.
Throughout the film, the energy and visceral power of flamenco propels the characters: flamenco revisited by Sevilla’s Derby Motoreta’s Burrito Kachimba with their title “Gitana”, or classic flamenco, a reflection of their emotions and intimate identities during a very moving christening dance.
We would all like to have a flamencita fairy, magical Louboutins and friends like them!
