“My lies are nothing other than altered truths; they’re not imparted in order to deceive, but in order to escape from grim reality for a brief moment. Which criteria do we in fact use to refute the truth of the lie?
My lies are nothing other than truths that, in the mouth of another, would not be considered lies.”
By telling lies, to oneself and the world, she has lost her ability to distinguish between reality and fantasy. She moves through a labyrinth made of real and invented memories and can no longer find her way out.
Like the Italian comic in the 1970s who imitated so many voices he forgot his own, Jone San Martin’s character constantly changes paths and gets lost, looking unceasingly for herself.
