The Apostate (El Apostata – Spain)

A Spanish man wants to officially leave the Catholic Church but finds himself in a Kafkaesque bureaucratic nightmare while he keeps having sex with his cousin or found himself in dreamlike situations like a nudist class or being seduced on a bus and then there is the rom-com like relationship with the single mom downstairs whose son he gives private tutorials to. Blending these 3 movies together here is like mixing oil and water and this crazily incoherent existential European arthouse surreal rom-com simply goes nowhere for me.
