Snowy day in Barcelona. Alma, a little girl, skips through the snow covered streets. Her attention is caught by a strange doll in an antique toy shop window. Fascinated, Alma decides to enter. (IMDb.com)
Alma (2009) is a Spanish short movie written and directed by Rodrigo Blaas. It’s one of those fascinating wordless stories you want to watch again and again.
Alma is lovely and scary at the same time. I’ve never seen a film like this before. The punchline was very shocking for me! As I found on Wikipedia, the word alma in Spanish means soul. Soul? Why soul? After watching you’ll understand.
