CinemaAttic says: A staff favourite, to watch My Mexican Bretzel in a big screen is probably the best cinematic experience you’ll have in 2021.

Awarded the Found Footage Award at IFFR 2020 and Winner of 3 Gaudi Awards, My Mexican Bretzel is a mesmerising journey filled with images of painstaking beauty that are balsam to the eyes and the soul.
The discovery of Nuria Gimenez Lorang as a witty, bright writer and the astonishing beauty of the film images result in one of the most imaginative films seen in 2020.

My Mexican Bretzel becomes the filmed diary of a Swiss woman whose lifestyle will make you dream.
Vivian Barrett experienced the world of the 1950-60s like something from a novel -skying in the Alps during winter, flying over the Rocky mountains or sailing the Mediterranean during the Summer.

Lies are just another way of telling the truth. What is cinema after all, but a big illusion? A manipulated “documentary” that has aroused praise and enthusiasm in a vast number of festivals.

“It is an excellent film; one of those rare times that as soon as the movie ended, I went back and started watching it again from the beginning.” (Docs in Orbit)
