"Bowl of Oatmeal, a rare group effort led by Dietmar Post, is the tale of a hermit in the throes of a nervous breakdown who receives advice from a sly, articulate bowl of oatmeal with a Bostonian accent."
Michael Simmons, L.A. Weekly
"Desperate people who hate making decisions will take advice from just about anywhere ... mail-order evangelists, psychics, politicians, breakfast food. A morbidly fascinating look at the effect two of the major food groups have on a lonely man's life."
Chicago Underground Film Festival
"A lonely man on the brink of emotional desolation begins to hear voices emanating from his breakfast cereal, guiding him to get a hobby. Against his oatmeal's better judgment, he takes on a new pastime involving stolen meat."
New York Underground Film Festival
"Who ever thought a conversation with a bowl of oatmeal would make for intriguing cinema? Bowl of Oatmeal is the story of a paranoid shut-in who tries to take advice from his kvetching breakfast. The camera work is basic, but the dry humor of the script keeps things moving."
Neil Gladstone, Philadelphia City Paper
"Atmospheric and strangely compelling."
Pietro González, a well known American-Chilean actor from New York with a long trajectory in theater, has recently appeared in Sydney Pollack's "The Interpreter", with Sean Penn and Nicole Kidman.
Pietro could also recently be seen in the play "Severity of a Tyrant's Tale" from Vargas Llosa, at the Spanish Repertory Theater in New York. The New York Times wrote:
"Pietro González (an actor who looks disconcertingly like a diminutive Mikhail Gorbachev) plays Joaquín Balaguer, Trujillo's longtime second-in-command and powerful successor with the craft of a master plotter awaiting his chance."
