Serra is more baroque than minimalistic. A larger than life minimalist, his letter is something between a documentary, a diary and an essay. It’s an attempt to stage his actors and film crew. It’s a meeting with Don Quijote and Sancho Panza at the moment when they learn the meaning of love. Pragmatically speaking, we’re watching scenes capturing the off-camera atmosphere during the preparation of another movie. It’s not entirely coincidental that the letter is called And the Lord Performed Miracles For Me. Serra and Alonso make films about friendship, with people they respect and with whom they have shared experiences.
