So I've never seen La Nouba in person due to the cost, but I did rent it on dvd from netflix this week. It was absolutely amazing and one of these days I'm just going to have to do it and go see it, but I did want to know if anyone knew what the story they were trying to tell is.
The only thing I could figure out was that the cleaning lady must have fallen asleep on the job and what we were witnessing on the stage were her strange dreams come to life. Is there anything more to it than that? Do the various characters have stories behind why they're there and doing what they're doing, etc...?
