You'd Be Nothing Without Me
Sin mí no serías nada


This unpretentious comedy of domestic fiction portrays the figure, always behind the scene and often ignored of the “artist’s partner”, the ramblings of an unmotivated woman who dies of boredom in the huge studio of a famous painter.

However, the piece is not only about a subdued woman, a victim of her partner in a gender conflict. Her addiction to drugs is a rebellion: the intravenous injection of the eye as an act of introspection. Her musical improvisation is a masterpiece. Her character reveals weariness and a desire for independence. The film itself deactivates the abuse of power. The tension drops as the actors intentionally overact aware of the fact that they are playing a part in a comedy. In fact, the dramatization of their personalities redefine the hierarchies that were obvious to us from the beginning.

 

Esta modesta comedia de ficción doméstica retrata la figura siempre velada y pocas veces considerada de "la pareja del artista", presentando los devaneos desmotivados de una mujer que se aburre en el inmenso estudio de un pintor consagrado.

Pero la pieza no solo presenta una mujer sometida, víctima de su pareja en un conflicto de género. Su drogadicción es una rebelión: la introspección del ojo en la vena. Su improvisación musical es una obra maestra. Su carácter revela hartazgo y voluntad de independencia. La propia película desactiva el abuso de poder del pintor desdramatizando la escena del agravio, en la que los actores se "saben" haciendo comedia. De hecho, el "teatro" de sus personalidades redefine las jerarquías que sospechábamos entre ellos.
