FINISTERRAE (Sergio Caballero, 2010)

Two ghosts, or to be precise - two Russians with bedsheets draped over their heads drift through a bleak Spanish mountainside on horseback. The steed is sometimes replaced by a wooden horse, and sometimes it disappears altogether, when the similarly disappearing-reappearing wheelchair comes in handy. In between pondering existential matters in a slurring monotone, the ghosts encounter things like talking reindeer, a talking owl, trees with earlobes as well as a fellow ghost who lifts up her bedsheet to show off some expensive-looking breast implants.

You know, now and again, you owe it to yourself to tackle one of these things. It's tedious, it's hilarious, it's singular nonsense.
