Two simultaneous but very different lives walk without looking at each other nor getting infected, separated by a dark, unilluminated strip. It is there, in that shadowy frontier, swampy ground, where the intimate and the shared, the secret and the familiar, where Jay Rosenblatt makes his film Human Remains by focusing the intimate lives of dictators of the 20th century, Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Fao, Franco. Domestic footage, archival footage, intelligently manipulated by Jay Rosenblatt and the testimony of the protagonists through off-voices that examine the dictators´ favourite food, health problems and everyday habits. And above all the voices, the translator’s voice, who simultaneously translates the dictators. “I had wind problems” states Hitler, “I have a lot of sense of humour” says Stalin or “I was not homosexual” confesses Mao
