When a young matador is gored in his debut bullfight, the offending animal is then hacked to pieces and sent off to touch the lives, Magnolia-style, of a gaggle of angsty Europeans. As they work through their respective neuroses, debut helmer Delphine Gleize ably handles the interweaving storylines, grabbing the metaphorical bull by the horns and never letting go. The result is an awkward but intelligent picture that engages the brain without ever touching the heart.
