Plot – Spoilers:
John Pressman lives with his mother along with a large number of birds and snails and is regularly hypnotized by her. He works as some sort of assistant to an ophthalmologist, though his mother regards him as a fine surgeon. What he’s good at though is cutting out the eyes of people and bringing them home to mother.
At this point there’s an entertaining twist to the movie that turns again during the credits at the end. A very enjoyable work from the Spanish master.
