Al centro de la Tierra

Daniel Rosenfeld returns to the tools he already used in The Chimera of Heroes (2003). Better yet, he returns to a particular notion about the use of such tools: without the narrowness that results from urgency but with a fair distance and the necessary time to detect that spot where the incredible takes place. And from then on, instead of approach...

Arribeños

Sometimes a space of barely one kilometer can hide a universe of interoceanic adventures and family sagas. In the two blocks of Arribeños street between Juramento and Olazábal, sits what is known as Chinatown, a place that hides the possibility of several parallel universes between its two borders, the ones of the generations of Taiwa...

Cuerpo de letra

A huge empty vertical space. It’s a portion of the rough background you see in a highway. It could be left alone, just as it happens all over the world. It could have plants, or it could be a mural. But in Buenos Aires and its surroundings, a highway wall can become –and does so, too often– political propaganda, mere names and las...

Generación artificial

Welcome to the funniest, freest, sharpest, and –why not– more serious film made about its theme Argentine cinema has delivered in a long (maybe too long) time. It’s a radical Artificial Generation and is also enchanting, and the fact that someone has managed to put those two things into the same image flow is a huge merit. Maybe i...

Guido Models

“Selling anticuchos wasn’t his dream, so after trying different jobs and getting fired a few times, Guido started as an assistant cutter in a textile shop.” The paragraph is located somewhere down the middle of a splendid profile of Guido Fuentes (Tarija, Bolivia, 1974) that was published on the website of the Bolivian Consulate i...

Idilio

Idyll presents itself as a love story. Yes, Camila is in love, “stupid in love”: that’s how the film begins, that’s its first chapter. Since she’s in love, she sees the word with an enthusiast smile, maybe too enthusiast. Sebastián, her friend and confidant, listens to and tolerates her. He even tries to remain...

La princesa de Francia

The initial sequence of this film is not just memorable and absolutely genius, but it also speaks of a masterful stage and choreographic ability: Matias Piñeiro’s third Shakespearian feat opens way through a Soccer 5 field shot from some balcony in Buenos Aires with a score by Schumann. With the help of Fernando Lockett’s great eye and a remarkable...

La sombra

Even when it carries a hint of irony and another one of undeniable bitterness, the Citizen Kane quote Javier Olivera slips in The Shadow is not gratuitous. His own story, the story of his father as a young cinema tycoon in Argentina, the story of the northern suburb mansion where his family lived an idyllic life that was recorded in fine Super 8, i...

Lulú

Ludmila and Lucas live in a shack in one of the richest areas of Buenos Aires. Ludmila moves around in a wheelchair (she has a bullet inside of her that apparently put her on the chair), even when she doesn’t seem to need it –she does it for no reason, or for begging. Lucas’ job is picking up bones and butcher’s wastes in a...

Madres de los dioses

Pablo Agüero returns to El Bolsón to narrate in three movements (Apocalypse, Illumination, and Genesis) the life of four women who at one point decide to leave their lives and start from scratch, assume a new religion, and build a temple. Mothers of the Gods is a hypnotic, mysterious and somewhat sensual portrait of Samiha, Humana, Mar&...

Mar

The road, a car, and a certain family tension we feel in the air seem to be –once again– the basic elements Sotomayor needs in order to organize the story. In this case, it’s a trip to Villa Gesell, and the film starts with an already triggered conflict: we find Martín and his girlfriend Eli by the side of the road, arguing...

The routine life of an out-of-season beach town is slightly altered by the arrival of Javier, a young man who checks in at the hostel where Sofía works. We don’t know much about his reasons for being in that place at that time, but their relationship gets closer in a conversation that will stretch for several days, as they walk through...

Delfina: a married woman with a husband and a teenage daughter, a solid financial status, and a maid. A friend introduces her to Kamil, an older man who plays in the big finances but above all plays the role of manipulating and sophisticated shark.

Poner al rock de moda

The hero’s journey, that mythology turned dogma that both enriched and hurt classic narrative, might easily find a reflection on the rock music world, with its guitar-holding gentlemen facing obstacles that seem unsalvageable in a fantasy world. But unlike most films about music bands, Bring Back Rock is not a documentary about a rise to star...

Todo el tiempo del mundo

A school and a film director have joined forces in order to make a film. The filmmaker (Rosendo Ruiz) provided what a film director must provide, of course, but he went far beyond: he became fully involved in a collective work, left aside another part of what a film director is supposed to provide, and put together script, crew and cast along with...

When she’s awaiting the train, when she’s in her kitchen fixing up some food, Victoria Morán doesn’t seem to be any different from the rest. But when she sings the first notes of an Omara Portuondo song, we can realize that she’s something special. Victoria is a singer with an exceptional voice. She has released album...
