Plot – Spoilers:
English spoken with a Spanish accent. If you find it hard to catch some of the lines, unfortunate, because we tried coming up with subtitles, but that was a nightmare and we finally gave up.

Maximum Shame begins with a couple in bed indulging in mathematical foreplay. Then the guys slides down a rabbit hole limbo between reality and fantasy where he encounters a (chess) Queen, who stumbles around on roller skates while controlling his fantasy and convincing herself it’s all a game of chess. The wife/girlfriend soon joins his fantasy and we go into ception-like layers. It all doesn’t make sense after a while, but considering the extremely low budget, Maximum Shame is a bunch of very entertaining scenes stuck together. Or maybe as the ending suggests, it’s just the simple rambling delusions of a pregnant woman.

There really isn’t any gore, but it’s been slotted in the category for a nice scene of a room full of fetuses.

Possible interpretations for those that care: The Queen of Catalan love is someone eating food while leisurely playing chess being compared to a deity that can perform a miracle like dropping spaghetti on the board. The bishop is in chains because her movement is restricted significantly compared to… Read more »
