SANTA SANGRE

Length 123 , Italy | Mexico (1989) Director: Alejandro JodorowskyActors: Axel Jodorowsky, Blanca Guerra, Guy Stockwell שפה: Eng., Heb. sub

There, he encounters by chance a woman from his past, triggering a series of flashbacks.

Back in the present, buttressed by shock of his remembrance, he escapes the sanitarium and, in a series of hallucinations and dream-fulfillments, believes he has rejoined his armless mother. He "becomes her arms" and the "two"
