  • Unmade Beds

    2008. Great Britain. Directed by Alexis Dos Santos. Few if any directors can capture the world of Bohemian youth with the dead-on aim and exuberance of Alex Dos Santos (Glue, ND/NF 2007). When wide-eyed Spaniard Axl comes to London, ostensibly to find the father who abandoned him, he lands in the middle of a creative hotbed of polyglot youth. Girls and boys from different countries congregate in an underground squat, coming and going as the spirit moves them. Axl finds an ally in Vera, a Belgian girl newly dumped by her boyfriend, and they both find romance with a handsome, elusive stranger. This perfectly titled second film vibrates with soulful energy, enhanced by a musical score that suits the story's shifting mood from slapstick to yearning. Dos Santos employs a startlingly original visual and sonic language to tell his story of these irreverent and irresistible searchers. 93 min.
